The effect of a first aid course on the disgust level
Váňová, Barbora ; Kuba, Radim (advisor) ; Dlouhá, Daniela (referee)
Disgust is an affective component of the behavioral immune system. The behavioral immune system is a set of psychological mechanisms that help the body to protect itself against pathogens and other potential risk factors, thus influences the life of an individual in a wide range of situations. An example of such a situation might be the provision of first aid. First aid is an important part of the process of saving a person's life and, if provided correctly and in a timely manner, can significantly improve the course of treatment in hospital care. Disgust is one of the factors that can reduce or inhibit the willingness to provide first aid. However, there is a lack of research evidence on whether and how first aid courses specifically modify perceptions of disgust. Therefore, we decided to focus on this fact in the present study. The study was conducted through questionnaire survey before, after and one month after the first aid course. The respondents were in the experimental group participants of first aid courses organized at the Faculty of Science of Charles University and in the control group participants of other, non-first aid related courses. Purpose-designed questionnaires focused on previous experience with first aid, evaluation of the distastefulness of the tasks performed on the course,...

Author: Bc. Filip Zakonov Supervisor: PhDr. Helena Vomáčková, Ph.D. Title: Analysis of the most common injuries among the players of floorball aged 7-18 and the influence of the compensatory methods on their prevention. Objectives: The main aim of this thesis is to analyse the most common injuries among young people who regularly play floorball and find out the effect of the intervention of a physiotherapist or the application of compensatory exercises in the training process on the incidence of injuries. It is also important to compare the availability of physiotherapists for individual youth teams and whether the provided care is sufficient to prevent injuries. Furthermore, the aim is to verify whether the most affected segment even among floorball youth is the ankle joint, which in studies focused on the adult category has repeatedly emerged as the most frequently injured area of all parts of the body. Moreover, my effort is to evaluate the most common causes of injuries - whether a collision with another player is more probable risk factor than an injury caused by one's own fault. Methods: The special part consists of a study that was conducted using a non- standardized questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was sent deliberately in an electronic form to all clubs in the Czech Republic via the...

Title: The effect of the compensation program on the reduction of muscle imbalances for football players U17 and U19 Objectives: The objective of this study is to design and test the effect of a set of compensatory exercises for U17 and U19 soccer players that will lead to a reduction in muscle imbalances. Methods: The theoretical part used content analysis of documents and other scientific publications discussing muscle imbalances in football players. In the practical part, an entrance diagnosis was performed to detect muscle imbalances. In the practical part of the study 38 players (boys) of the U17 and U19 category of the MFK Chrudim football club were included. Both categories (U17 and U19) were divided into two groups, the intervention group and the control group. The probands were tested with a standardized protocol according to the muscle test according to Janda (2004). The rating scales were also taken from these tests. Furthermore, the testing was completed with tests according to Kolar (2009), focusing on the deep stabilization system (diaphragm test, intra-abdominal pressure test) and joint mobility of the lower limbs in the form of a deep squat test. Other tests used were the Thomayer test, deep- seated forward bending according to the test battery: the Unifittest (6-60), and an...
Possibilities of Physiotherapy for Irish Dancers
This bachelor thesis explores the possibilities of physiotherapy for Irish dancers. Irish dance is a folkloric dance originating from Ireland. It has developed into a competitive sport where there is a strong emphasis on technical dance execution and posture (Wallace, 2020). The dance is performed on tiptoe in shoes with minimal support. Typically, there is rapid alternation of the lower limbs and high lunges with impact on the extended lower limb in plantar flexion. Starting dance positions with the right lower limb extended in front of the body and the weight on the left lower limb place high demands on the dancers' musculoskeletal system, putting them at risk of injury (Buck, 2012). The first aim of this research was to describe musculoskeletal difficulties of Irish dancers. The second aim was to design compensatory exercises based on the described difficulties and the third aim was to evaluate the results of the applied compensatory exercises on the musculoskeletal system of Irish dancers. The theoretical part summarizes the history of Irish dance, Irish dance music, types of dance and dance shoes. The specifics of Irish dance, the most common injuries of Irish dancers, and the ideal structure of dance training are described. Methods that can be used in therapy are also mentioned. The practical part took the form of qualitative research with 3 probands, non-professional Irish dancers. The results are presented in the form of case studies, where an initial kinesiological examination was performed on all probands and therapy was proposed, which took the form of 8 individual therapies and home self-therapy for 3 months. Subsequently, an exit kinesiological examination was performed and the results of the research were evaluated by comparison with the entry kinesiological examination. It was found that the most problematic parts of the Irish dancers were weakened hip stabilizers, insufficient trunk stabilization, insufficient activation of the foot muscles and weakened lower scapular fixators. The thesis can be used as an informative and educational material for dancers and trainers of Irish dance, or for the public interested in this issue.
