INFLUENCE OF THE PARAVERTEBRAL MYORELAXATION ON THE FORCED RESPIRATION IN ATHLETES

O. B. MAME TOVA, G. A. MOROZ MEDICAL ACADEMY NAMED AFTER S. I. GEORGIEVSKY OF THE V. I. VERNADSKY CRIMEAN FEDERAL UNIVERSITY, SIMFEROPOL, REPUBLIC OF CRIMEA

Objective: to study the effectiveness of the influence of the paravertebral myorelaxation (segments C3–Th8) on the forced respiration in athletes of different sports.
Materials and Methods: the respiratory function in football players (n = 30), weightlifters (n = 30), and wrestlers (n = 30) was assessed with the «Spiro-Test PC» before and after the paravertebral myorelaxation in the aquatic environment.
Results: a significant increase in almost all the parameters of the forced respiration after paravertebral myorelaxation in wrestlers was observed. In weightlifters increment of the forced respiration parameters was observed to a smaller extent. Changes of the parameters of the forced respiration in football players after the paravertebral myorelaxation were not statistically significant.
Conclusions: the increase of the parameters of the forced respiration (p ≤ 0,05) after paravertebral myorelaxation in wrestlers indicates that the optimization of the functional state of the muscles of the back is a factor of influence on the airway conductance and speedstrength characteristic of muscles.
