New Solutions / Science to Solving Common Volleyball Injuries Including Knee, Back, Shoulder, and Ankle Injuries

by Andor Gyulai, Founder and Owner of Volleyball 1on1


If you are like me, you are constantly looking for better ways to deal with knee and back pain from playing and coaching volleyball. At 38 approaching 40 and looking to play in the Olympics, I knew I needed to find new solutions for dealing with common patellar tendonitis (Jumpers knee) and back pain. 

Well new advancements in the science of taping may offer solutions to these plus other common volleyball injuries. A new tape called bio-mechanic tape has just hit the market, and this tape acts like a bungee cord tied to the body. This means the tape on your body can be used to absorb and create load, thus having huge impacts when jumping, spiking, blocking, or aggressively moving in volleyball.

This is different than any tape on the market and applied differently than kinesio tape or athletic tape. If you are a player, coach, or trainer, this is an incredible new tool that offers allot of new solutions when dealing with volleyball. Click the Link to see more videos and uses of Dynamic Tape.



As a volleyball player you know how much patellar tendonitis and osgood-schlatter hurts. In this video we share an easy to use taping technique that will reduce load on the knee and significantly reduce pain for most people.


In the next video we discuss taping techniques to help with back pains from playing volleyball. This simple technique covers many of the most common back pain problems and will help reduce load on the back while playing.



In this video we discuss an easy taping technique for volleyball shoulder injuries. What we like about this technique is that it is useful for a wide variety of pains and aliments as well as is easy enough for parents coaches and other players to do.

The science of the human bodies has changed dramatically for the better in the last few years and so have the tool. This tape is completely unique to traditional athletic tape or kinesiology tape. This tape has an elastic capacity well in excess of 200% as well as it stretches in all directions unlike kineso tape which only stretches in two directions. This ability to stretch / create and absorb load means it can be used in a number of capacities including injury prevention and changing movement mechanics.

New Tool To Improve Volleyball Technique and Reduce Volleyball Injuries – Bio Mechanic Tape

by Andor Gyulai, Founder and Owner of Volleyball 1on1

The science of the human bodies has changed dramatically for the better in the last few years and so have the tool. This week we want to highlight a new type of tape that offers new ways to help volleyball players reduce volleyball injuries and improve volleyball technique / form.

This tape is completely unique to traditional athletic tape or kinesiology tape. This tape has an elastic capacity well in excess of 200% as well as it stretches in all directions unlike kineso tape which only stretches in two directions. What this means is the tape can be used like a spring or bungee cord to create and absorb load during athletic movement.

This ability to create and absorb load means it can be used in a number of capacities including injury prevention and changing movement mechanics.
 



In this video the bio mechanic tape (Dynamic Tape) is used to alter the form of a volleyball player and help teach the player to use more trunk or hips while spiking. As most coaches know trunk rotation / hips is crucial to avoiding volleyball injuries of the shoulder as the muscles can deliver large amounts of force when spiking while reducing the amount of stress on the joints as compared to a player who mainly uses shoulder muscles for power.

Volleyball1on1 has filmed other corrective uses of dynamic tape for improving spiking technique including videos for jumping, trunk stability, opening up the shoulders back to create space to encourage trunk rotation forward and a video for correcting late cocking when spiking.

Other more traditional uses of the tape are for the creation and absorption of load. Because of the elastic or bungee nature of the tape many traditional impact injuries associated with volleyball can be quickly dealt with. Also for more experienced trainers bio tape gives you a new tool you only dreamed of for helping your volleyball athletes.

Seven Camera Volleyball Video Demo can Help Improve Motor Skill Learning on Beach Defense

by Andor Gyulai, Founder and Owner of Volleyball 1on1

LAWS OF LEARNING: “I hear I forget, I see I remember, I do I understand” - Chinese Proverb

Motor learning studies have found that movement information is retained in memory in the form of an image. Given this, video demonstrations are a great way to provide the images and accelerate motor learning of volleyball skills.

This week Volleyball1on1 added some new resources for the volleyball community in the form of never before done seven camera angle volleyball video demos. These videos offer a completely new way for players and coaches to consume important fundamentals regarding volleyball skills and technique.



This video features a top AVP Beach Volleyball Pro putting on a skills defensive clinic for the viewers. If you like old school volleyball and enjoy watching some of the greats like Sinjin Smith and Mike Dodd, you are going to love this video.

What we find impressive is movement patterns she uses. Also by filming this from multiple angles and slowing down the play it does not take long for views, be that players or coaches to understand the motor skills needed and thus be able to implement them for themselves.

Volleyball1on1 is in the process of adding and extensive library of volleyball demonstration, how to videos. Most will be filmed with multiple cameras and edited in regular and slow motion in order to help viewers really grasp some tough skills.

From what we have seen so far we think this is going to be a major resources for the volleyball community at large.
