Transcript of Anatomy: The Field Hockey Drive

The Field Hockey Drive The field hockey drive is used as a one of the most powerful shots in the sport.

Point of a drive:
-Advance the ball up or down the field quickly
-Shot on goal
-Defensive technique
-Fast removal of ball

The field hockey drive uses a great number of muscles in the upper and lower body. In our research we analyzed only the upper body section. There are four phases to a field hockey drive; the ready position, swing, follow through, and final rotation of stick. There has been an analysis of each phase placed below demonstrating specifically which muscles, joints and bones are being used in each phase. Introduction to the drive The most common injuries in the sport are caused by getting hit with something, a ball, stick or person. These often results in bruises or fractures. Some other injuries are described below and can often be prevented by stretching correctly.

Usually an injury due to overuse.
The area of a tendon prone to injury is called a watershed zone.
Tendonitis can occur in the base of the thumb, elbow and shoulder.
Muscle sprains and strains:
Sprains and strains are often confused.
A sprain is an injury to a ligament. Ligaments connect bones to other bones.
Sprains often occur at the ankle, knee, finger, wrist, and shoulder joints.
A strain is an injury to a muscle or a tendon. Tendons connect muscles to bones.
Strains can happen to any muscle in the body. Most common in hamstrings, calves, lower back or groin.
Dislocations happen when too much force is put a ligament.
Examples of these joints are the hip and shoulder. Possible Injuries
It is very important to be warmed up before practice in order to prepare your muscles for any athletic activity. While your body warms up it makes muscles more flexible and less likely to be strained.

Field hockey is a sport that involves a great deal of running as well as upper body movements, so it is necessary to stretch both your upper and lower body.

Below is a list of stretches on the upper body only that should be performed before this physical activity. Stretches Claire Cochran

Some injuries can’t always be prevented, like getting hit by a stick or ball. However, stretching can help prevent many injuries. By being aware of the muscles, bones, and joints involved in this skill help to not only improve one’s ability but also decrease the risk of harming one’s body.
