Title:
Marching Athletes: Analysis of Injuries and illnesses at Marching Band Camp
Abstract:
Marching Athletes: Analysis of Injuries and illnesses at Marching Band Camp
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society
Conference Year:2007
Author:Kilanowski, Jill, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Case Western Reserve University
Contact Address:Nursing, Dublin, OH, 43017, USA
Purpose: Little attention is paid to the athleticism of marching band members. No standards set for pre-practice warms-ups have been established. Many injuries and illnesses that occur during practices and performances may be preventable. The scope of the problem is unknown. Questions: Evaluate the selection of warm-up exercises with respect to rigor and the demands of a marching band. Identify patterns and types of injuries/illnesses. Explore the relationship between injuries and illnesses and 'day of training.' Methods: A retrospective chart analysis will be conducted from two consecutive years of visits to the health clinic of a one week competitive marching band pre-season camp of a Midwest high school with a band population of n = 170, 230. Visits and injuries will be classified and frequencies noted. Injuries will be correlated to day of band camp. Leaders of warm-up drills will be surveyed for pre-practice exercise routines and analyzed for types of muscle stretching involved and repetitions of activity with consideration of physiology of exercise theory. Findings: To be completed fall/winter 2006. Implications: Limited published literature exists on the marching band student often concentrating on hydration and exercise in heat conditions. The injuries sustained at band camps and their examination will provide preliminary data on appropriate changes in pre-practice exercise leading to reduction of incidence rates and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries. Many schools are adequately funded to staff sport trainers however these trainers may not be involved in developing or monitoring conditioning programs for the marching band. Similar to school health nursing, marching band camp clinic requirements demand a higher acuity of needed care. A survey of typical injuries and clinic visits can also assist medical and nursing staff in planning for the delivery of care to these students and facilitate the appropriation of equipment and supplies.
