Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose: The general problem was to determine the relationship between biorhythms and injuries to college football participants representing Oregon State University. Procedures: The population consisted of one hundred and ninty two football players representing Oregon State University who participated in the intercollegiate football seasons of 1981 and 1982. Injury data and birth data for this study were obtained from Kevin O'Neill Oregon State University Head Athletic Trainer. The injury data were recorded for each year and added for total number of injuries. The method referred to as "biomathematics" as outlined by Thommen was selected as the most appropriate procedure to calculate and chart the biorhythms of the injured football players. To examine the accuracy of Thommen's charting method, the Dialgraf calculator was also used. Analysis of Data: The data were analyzed by means of chi square design. A significant level of .05 for rejection or acceptance of the null hypothesis was selected: Conclusions: From the statistical evaluation of the results, the following conclusions may be made. 1. There is no relationship between the critical days of the biorhythm of individual players and the occurrence of football injuries. 2. There is no relationship between the physical, the emotional and the intellectual biological rhythms and the occurrence of football injuries. 3. There is no relationship between the combination of physical, emotional and intellectual biological rhythms and the occurrence of football injuries.
