Abstract :

 The main goal of this research was to compare painfully regions of the body and the intensity of pain at 45 young swimmers (N = 45, average age =14,13) and rowers (N=43, average age = 15,42). All of the tested have filled out the modified SEFIP questionnaire. They had to mark (for every given part of the body) observed pain and the intensity of the same. For the data analysis T-test and Bartlett test were used. The results of this research have led to a conclusion that swimmers felt the pain in lower back, knee and shoulder, while young rowers had the lower back and knee pain, but also felt the same in the neck and the calf. Significantly differences in the intensity of pain were found in the shoulder, elbow, hand fingers, hip and the feet. Obtained results are own to the specific load at every given training session. It can be recommended to pay the attention on the warming-up, strenghtening and stretching the muscles through the season. ABSTRACT KEYWORD
