Keywords:Therapeutic exercises, sport injuries, rotator cuff injury, shoulder injury, muscular injury, stretching with PNF
The research aim at identifying the effect of rehabilitation program using stretching exercises (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) PNF in rotator cuff partial tear in female volleyball players according to functional variables. The researchers used the experimental method on (9) volleyball players with partial tear in the rotator cuff. They used the experimental method and the data was collected and treated using proper statistical operations to conclude significant differences between pre and posttests in heart pulse, blood pressure, and muscle mass percentage. Finally the researchers recommended using stretching to facilitated PNF in rehabilitating rotor cuff as well as using these exercises have a positive role in healing all functional variables to their normal state.
