Meticulous sensory examination revealed a decrease in sensation to light touch over an area consistent with the distribution of the palmar cutaneous branch of the median nerve. It is postulated that the patient's complaints were due to right median palmar cutaneous nerve damage secondary to repetitive trauma to the right forearm and wrist as a result of her competitive volleyball play.
Entrapment neuropathy of the suprascapular nerve (SNE), although a recognised clinical entity, is a relatively rare cause of shoulder pain and subjective weakness in the athlete involved in overhead sports like volleyball and badminton. This study deals with the presentation and management of four u …
The nerve can become entrapped at both locations, but it is at the spinoglenoid notch that volleyball players are particularly vulnerable. Studies have shown that anywhere from 12% to 30%, top level volleyball players have infraspinatus muscle weakness and atrophy . There are various theories as to the mechanism of injury to the nerve . It is generally thought to occur from traction and/or compression of the nerve during the extreme motions of the arm during the cocking or follow-through ...

Below are some of the most common injuries connected to volleyball. #9: “Sand Toe” Although the most widespread type of volleyball injury overall is ankle sprains, beach volleyball in particular has its own set of unique concerns. In addition to issues caused by foreign bodies in the sand (such as lacerations to the foot and toes caused by shells or glass), “sand toe” is another cause for concern.

Suprascapular neuropathy, also called infraspinatus syndrome, or "volleyball shoulder", is an injury to the suprascapular nerve, causing atrophy (wasting away) of the infraspinatus muscle, which is one of the 4 rotator cuff muscles, located just below the shoulder blade.
Nerve injuries are most commonly seen in baseball, football, volleyball, and snow-related sports. The mechanisms of nerve injury vary, and include direct trauma, acute stretch, repetitive stretch traction, local tissue swelling and injury, or (rarely) a postsurgical nerve injury.
Overuse injuries are common in sports involving the hand and wrist, such as racquet sports, netball, basketball and volleyball. Nerve injuries are more commonly compressive neuropathies, and are seen with cyclists who may compress the ulnar nerve in Guyon's canal.
