Abstract: Hamstring injuries are commonly found in the sporting area and more predominantly seen in the football players due to various activities that the sport involves like running and kicking. There are different types of techniques used to decrease hamstring tightness like neurodynamic sliding, PNF stretching, static stretching and eccentric training. The purpose of study was to investigate immediate effectiveness of eccentric training versus hold relax PNF technique in male football players of age group 15 to 21 years with reduced hamstring flexibility. The study incorporated total 40 Athletes having hamstring tightness with 20 athletes in Group A and 20 athletes in Group B. Group A received eccentric training and Group B received PNF stretching and the results were calculated immediately after......

|Title||:||Comparison of Sports Specific Balance Training Programs in Improving Balance and Agility in Basketball Players|
|Authors||:||Pritesh Yeole || Shalaka Pawar|
Abstract: The basketball players can go anywhere freely in the court where it divides into upper zone and lower zone and therefore they may need to change in direction together with dribbling, jump shot and passing on even or hard surface. All of the skills above require the players to have great joint acceleration from jump landing and cutting maneuvers. Comparative study was conducted on 60 subjects according to inclusion and exclusion criteria between the Group A and group B included 30 subjects each.Group A received sports specific balance training program while balance training programme only was given to Group B for 4 weeks.Star excursion balance test and mini zig zag drill test were used as outcome measure.Both the group showed the significant improvment within the group analysis as p value <0.0001.But sports specific balance training program is more effective than balance training program in improving balance and agility in basketball players as p value is <0.0001 between the group comparison.

|Title||:||Incidence of Musculoskeletal Pain and Injuries in Lower Limbs in Marathon Runners|
|Authors||:||Kirti O. Sathe || Dr. BinduSarfare || Dr. SnehalGhodey|
Abstract: Background: The growingfame of marathons is bound to cause an upsurge in incidence of Running related injuries (RRIs). Howevertheir nature and relation with training parameters still remains uncertainin Indian population. Objective: Assessing incidence of musculoskeletal pain in lower limb in marathon runners. Findingoccurrence of musculoskeletal pain as per gender, age, training components. Studying distribution of lower limb musculoskeletal pain with respect to body part affected and pain intensity Design: Cross-sectional survey Methods: A self-made online form was formulated, authenticated and circulated amongst marathoners. Results: The Incidence of musculoskeletal pain was 64.7% in lower limb in marathon runners with knee injury being commonest (19.33%)after that calf (9.95%) and shin (8.56%).............
