Abstract Resume

Background: The aim of this study was to compare the rotation range of motion and performance in Closed Kinetic Chain test in handball male athetes with and without shoulder injury.
Methods: The study included 33 teams of players from the National League and the State Championship Handball mean age 21.48 ± 4.10 years, average weight 88.75 ± 13.04 kg, average
height 1.85 ± 0 07 meters early practice 8.03 ± 3.91 years, average weekly training hours 9.27 ± 0.97 hours. All subjects answered an anamnesis and EROE scale and questionnaire SPADI, as well
anthropometric data were collected. The range of shoulder rotation was measured using a goniometer. All subjects performed the Closed Kinect Chain test. The Mann-Whitney test was used to detect
differences between groups and also to evaluate the performance differences in CKC test. The one-way ANOVA test was applied to evaluate the differences between the shoulder goniometry values between
the groups with and without a history of injury. Results: There was a significant difference between internal and external rotation of shoulder range of motion in both of groups but
there is no difference between subjects with or without shoulder injury. There were no statistical differences between the groups and the test results of CKC. Conclusions: There was
no significant difference between the results obtained by subjects with lesions when compared to subjects without injury, but more studies are needed to verify that the involvement level of the
athlete's shoulder joint has influence on the performance in CKC test.
