Shoulder pain is influenced by a few factors such as gender, posture during daily activities, aging and psychological factors. Based on the study of Epidemiology of Injuries and Prevention Strategies in Competitive Swimmers, shoulder pain due to shoulder injuries can be reduced by strengthening the shoulder muscle.

Subjects were 30 healthy male routinely trained badminton players and 30 non-badminton players who voluntarily follow the rstudy procedures. Strength measurement procedures were provided to the subjects after getting informed consent.  Data analysis was performed using T-test.Results: The shoulder strength  in routinely trained badminton players was significantly different from  non-badminton players (P<0.05).Conclusions: Shoulder strength can be improved through routine training of badminton to reduce risk of shoulder injury. DOI: 10.15850/amj.v4n2.1083
