What are the common injuries in volleyball, and how do you use kinesiology tape volleyball as a protective measure?

Sports injuries in volleyball can be roughly divided into acute and chronic ones. The following is a classification description of common sports injuries in volleyball.

Acute sports injuries:

Acute sports injuries are mostly tissue damage caused by intrinsic or external forces. Generally, it can be remembered that it was caused by a specific action at a particular time or during a game. Volleyball is a high-frequency jumping sport. In addition to the shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, and thighs, the most common sports injuries are the ankle joints, knee joints, and waist. These three essential joints of the lower limbs have the highest injury rate.

Ankle sprain

Ankle sprains are commonly divided into two types: varus and valgus sprains. Widely injured ligaments include the deltoid ligament on the medial side of the ankle and the anterior talopulmonary ligament, calcaneopulmonary ligament, and posterior talopulmonary ligament on the lateral side. The injured person’s ankle will have obvious pain, swelling, and tenderness. Kinesiology tape for ankle taping method to prevent the risk of ankle sprains.

Knee ligament sprain

The knee’s ligaments can be divided into the medial collateral ligament, the lateral collateral ligament, and the anterior (posterior) cruciate ligament within the joint. Knee ligament sprains are usually caused by local tearing or even rupture caused by varus stress or torsion of the knee. Ligament sprains will cause apparent tenderness and knee swelling, while ligament rupture will cause insufficient joint stability. Kinesiology tape for knee taping method to stabilize the knee and relieve swelling and pain.

Knee meniscus injury

The meniscus is the fibrocartilage located between the femur and tibia. It is divided into the inner meniscus and the outer meniscus. Its primary function is to buffer the force perpendicular to the ground that the knee bears when jumping and landing. Volleyball often involves repetitive jumping movements, so meniscal injuries are prevalent. Kinesiology tape for meniscus taping method to relieve pain.

Waist muscle strain

Volleyball’s bow attack action must rely on the rapid contraction of back muscles. If there is insufficient warm-up exercise, it is straightforward to cause muscle strain. Using kinesiology tape volleyball to relieve pain from overused muscles.

Waist muscle strain

Chronic sports injuries:

Chronic sports injuries may result from long-term accumulation of minor injuries, tissue fatigue caused by overtraining, or even immature techniques and insufficient warm-up exercises.

Waist injury

Lower back injuries are common among volleyball players. In addition to back muscle fatigue caused by high-repetition bowing movements, the causes include insufficient back muscle strength (resulting in strenuous bowing movements), poor back flexibility, insufficient warm-up, and poor take-off and landing postures. Correct training and insufficient protective measures such as ice application, stretching, and muscle relaxation after competition are the leading causes of long-term accumulation of lower back discomfort.

Waist injury

Shoulder injuries

Many athletes who suffer from shoulder and neck postural syndrome are more likely to suffer chronic injuries to their shoulder tendons due to the accumulation of repeated attacking movements. Use kinesiology tape to help stabilize weak or tired muscles. For volleyball players, full range of motion in the shoulders is crucial for serving. Compared with other joints, the shoulder is the weak link in most cases, so it needs to be protected even more. Kinesiology tape for shoulder taping method.

Jumper’s knee

Jumpers’ knees are mainly caused by the inflammation of the subpatellar tendon in the front of the knee joint, caused by repeated jumping and sprinting movements. It usually causes pain, tenderness, and pain when jumping up. We recommend using runner knee tape to help the knee exert better force and reduce injuries.
