Differences in Trunk Strength Between Weightlifters and Wrestlers

lumbar, thoracic and hip extensors is crucial. Literature provides evidence that strength training of the trunk extensors in sport is important in the prevention of low back pain (LBP) ( Durall et al., 2009 ). Exercise will lead to a decrease in pain and disability, and to a reduction of LBP occurrence among athletes ( Gabriel et al., 1998 ; Renkawitz et al., 2006 , 2008 ). Trunk extensors strength training is also beneficial for sport performance ( Durall et al., 2009 ) and various types of physical activity and sports ( Guzik et al., 1996 ) due to its relationship

The effect of disability in daily living is reported to be greater in comparison to other chronic diseases ( 4 - 6 ). The impact of MS on health has been determined mainly through the physical disability measures over the past

The Incidence and Occurrence of Injuries to Junior Rugby League Players in a Tropical Environment

Introduction Rugby league is a collision sport that is played at both the junior and senior levels in contrasting environments around the world. Unfortunately, muscular skeletal injuries are common in this sport due to the physical nature of the game. While many studies have investigated the incidence of injury amongst senior rugby league players, only few have focused on the incidence of injury in junior players ( King et al., 2014 ). Furthermore, all the studies that examined the incidence of injuries in junior rugby league players have been conducted in
