ADDUCTOR MUSCLE INJURIES IN BOWLERS

ADDUCTOR MUSCLE INJURIES IN BOWLERS Abstract Bowling is considered a sport of little hazard and, as such, has not rated mention in recent articles on athletic injuries. Bowling injuries have usually been limited to fingers pinched in the ball rack and occasional toes bruised by dropped bowling balls. The cases here discussed concern another injury which can be related to the peculiar mechanics of bowling. The problem involves strain, and in one case actual avulsion, of the muscles of adduction of the thigh. Stress on these structures occurs during braking at the foul line on delivery of a bowling ball. Report of Cases Case 1.— A man, aged 44, weighing 220 lb. (99.9 kg.), 6 ft.

Abstract

Abstract Bowling is considered a sport of little hazard and, as such, has not rated mention in recent articles on athletic injuries. Bowling injuries have usually been limited to fingers pinched in the ball rack and occasional toes bruised by dropped bowling balls. The cases here discussed concern another injury which can be related to the peculiar mechanics of bowling. The problem involves strain, and in one case actual avulsion, of the muscles of adduction of the thigh. Stress on these structures occurs during braking at the foul line on delivery of a bowling ball. Report of Cases Case 1.— A man, aged 44, weighing 220 lb. (99.9 kg.), 6 ft. (183 cm.) tall, with a heavy, protruding abdomen, sustained an injury to the right groin while bowling on Nov. 25, 1958. I observed the accident throughout its course, since I am a member of the patient's bowling team.The patient, References 1. Christopher, F.: Minor Surgery , ed. 4, Philadelphia, W. B.
