No Intervention: Control group
This group of athletes do not perform a 6-week stretching program.
Experimental: Home stretching program
These athletes take on a home stretching program (sleeper's stretch).
Procedure: home stretching program
A home stretching program (sleeper's stretch): 3 x 30 seconds, once a day for 6 weeks.
- Size of the subacromial space and shoulder mobility. [ Time Frame: at 0 weeks ]Measurment of the size of the subacromial space and shoulder mobility are performed by an ultrasound and an inclinometer.
- Size of the subacromial space and shoulder mobility. [ Time Frame: after 6 weeks ]Measurment of the size of the subacromial space and shoulder mobility are performed by an ultrasound and an inclinometer.
