S. Ramkumar [3] | R. Keerthana [2]


Abstract: Problem statement: Achilles Tendinitis is one of the commonest injuries that happen to football players. Achilles tendon strength is important to prevent the recurrence of Achilles Tendon injuries in football players.30 Meter Sprint Test is the type of outcome measure to assess the conditions. Approach: The subjects were approached via Sri Venkateshwaraa Medical College Hospital and Research Centre, Ariyur, Pondicherry ? 605102. Purpose: The study aimedto find the effect of Elastic Band along with Isometric Strengthening Exercises for the Achilles tendon on sprint performance among Football Players. Result: The statistical analysis obtained from the unpaired ?t - test shows that the calculated ?t? value of the post - test values of Group A and Group B for the 30 Meter Sprint Test is 5.83 (p <0.05). The values obtained from the statistical analysis concluded that there is a significant difference between Group A and Group B with Group A being more effective. Conclusion: The study concluded that the Elastic Band along with Isometric Strengthening Exercise shows a more significant improvement in Sprint Performance among Football Players.
