|Anatomical and neuromuscular contributions to anterior knee shear force during single-leg landings in females
||"This research investigated the collective interactions between hamstrings extensibility, anterior knee laxity, and hamstrings and quadriceps muscle activation as predictors of anterior knee shear forces during single-leg landings in females. Forty-f...
|A comparison of knee muscle activation and knee joint stiffness between female dancers and basketball players during drop jumps
||"This dissertation compared knee muscle activation of the lateral gastrocnemius, medial and lateral hamstrings, and lateral quadriceps (LG, MH, LH, and LQ) and knee joint stiffness(KJS) between female dancers(D) and basketball players(B) during the i...
|Effects of lower extremity posture on hip strength and their influence on lower extremity motion during a single leg squat
||"This research investigated the effects of static lower extremity posture on hip strength, and then examined their collective influence on knee and hip joint kinematics during a single leg squat in males and females. Thirty one healthy males and 31 h...
|Hormone status and measures of joint laxity
||"This study examined the relationships between oral contraceptive pill (OCP) use and measures of joint laxity. Methods: A menstrual history questionnaire identified 33 female athletes using OCPs. Separate stepwise linear regressions examined the exte...
