Olkanivelen ulko- ja sisäkierron sekä selkärangan kierron yhteys frisbeegolfin rystyheiton heittonopeuteen

The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between joint mobility and backhand throwing speed in disc golf. The purpose of this study was to increase the level of knowledge of physical therapists working with disc golf athletes and recreational players on how joint mobility correlates with backhand throwing speed and how the results can be incorporated into exercise programming.

This study was a quantitative cross-sectional study. The data was collected from seven participants, aged between 18 to 33 years, through joint testing of range of motion and throwing speed. The data was analysed using SPSS Statistics. Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient was used as the statistical data method. The statistical significance level used was p ≤ 0,05.

The results showed no statistically significant correlations between the measured variables. Further research is required to investigate the relationship between joint mobility and backhand throwing speed in disc golf.
