|Effect of Tuck Index on Impulse Produced during a Squat Jump in Swimmers
||Knowing what amount of tuck, as measured by tuck index, produces the highest impulse values during the push-off, along with push off phase duration and distance traveled by the center of mass during the push off phase of a squat jump, will help to op...
|Comparison of Problem Based Learning and Traditional Lecture Instruction on Critical Thinking, Knowledge, and Application of Strength and Conditioning
||The purpose of this research was to compare the effects of problem based learning (PBL) and traditional lecture instruction (TI) courses on critical thinking, knowledge and application of strength and conditioning throughout a semester long collegiat...
|Kinematic and kinetic effects of knee and ankle sagittal plane joint restrictions during squatting
|| "The purpose of this study was to evaluate compensatory biomechanical patterns in the lower extremity created by restricted knee flexion and ankle dorsiflexion when performing squats. Forty two healthy subjects (21 men, 21 women; 22.5 (4.5) years, 7...
|Varus/valgus and internal/external rotational knee joint stiffness in males and females
||"The purpose of this investigation was to establish day to day reliability of varus/valgus and internal/external rotational stiffness measures and then compare stiffnesses between males and females. Twenty healthy college students underwent varus/val...
|Effectiveness of cervical spine stabilization during spine boarding of collegiate lacrosse athletes
||"This study determined if properly and improperly fitted lacrosse helmets provide adequate stabilization of the head, and therefore the cervical spine, in the spine boarded athlete. A 3 x 3 repeated measures design was used with head to helmet range ...
|Estimation of muscle torque impulses and ability to predict high-risk knee joint mechanics during landing maneuvers
||This research first examined the validity of net knee joint moment estimations, calculated as the difference between quadriceps and hamstrings torques estimated using either an isometric or angle and action specific sEMG/Torque ratio calculated durin...
|A preliminary clinical prediction model for upper-extremity injury in collegiate baseball: a single-center retrospective study
||Context: Evidence-based practice (EBP) has become a point of emphasis in athletic training education and clinical practice. One approach to EBP is utilizing clinical prediction models (CPM) to assist clinicians in the screening, diagnosis, prognosis,...
|The relationship of ACL morphometry and structural composition to anterior knee laxity
||Greater anterior knee laxity (AKL) has been identified as a risk factor of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and could be indicative of a weaker ligament. While ACL morphometry and structural composition have the potential to affect ligamentous...
