|The Relationship Between Anterior Pelvic Tilt, Hamstring Extensibility and Hamstring Strength
||The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between hamstring extensibility and pelvic tilt, and their collective impact on hamstring strength. The first objective was to examine the relationship between anterior pelvic tilt and ham...
|The effect of lean body mass and strength on lower extremity energy absorption strategies during landing
||Lower amounts of lean body mass and strength in females compared to males have been proposed to result in greater relative task difficulty for females when asked to perform a standardized task and may explain sex differences in energy absorption stra...
|Associations between physical characteristics and landing biomechanics in adolescent females
||Females tear their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) at a rate of four to six times that of similarly trained males. This greater risk of ACL injury in females begins to emerge around age 12, then peaks and remains elevated from age 15 into adulthood....
|The ability of the FMS to predict knee injury in female collegiate athletes
||Non-contact knee injuries are one of the most common injuries among athletes that participate in sports that require cutting, quick deceleration and jumping actions. Researchers and clinicians have attempted to develop screening tools to identify tho...
|Effect of ankle dorsiflexion range of motion on knee biomechanics: implications for patellofemoral pain syndrome
||Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), or pain in the area of the kneecap, has been diagnosed in as many as one in four patients seen at a sports medicine clinic, yet its etiology and risk factors are surprisingly not well understood (Devereaux & Lachm...
|Comparison of neuromuscular control strategies between collegiate female dancers and athletes
||High risk neuromuscular control strategies during landing and cutting maneuvers are thought to be a major contributing factor to the 6 times greater risk of ACL injury in female athletes compared to male athletes. However, female dancers who have sim...
