How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Context: Women's volleyball requires frequent and repetitive jumping that when performed with altered biomechanics, including kinematic or kinetic asymmetry, may place the athlete at high risk for injury. This study identified and analyzed lower-extremity biomechanical asymmetries in college women's volleyball players during standard and sport-spe...
Subjective well-being is related to injury in soccer athletes, but little is known about how these variables change around a single athletic competition. Continued athletic participation combined with negative well-being may lead to tissue overload and subsequent injury. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the differences in daily w...
Background Traditional testing to identify asymmetries after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction include four similar horizontal hopping tests. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a single-leg vertical hopping test can identify performance and biomechanical asymmetries, and whether performance asymmetries provide unique informa...
Young female soccer players are at high risk of anterior cruciate ligament injury due to the fast-paced nature of the sport and surplus of unplanned movements during play. Neuromuscular training programs that aim to reduce this injury by targeting the associated biomechanical movements are a potential solution. While previous studies have examined...
The purpose of this study was to identify the knee movement patterns of athletes during the DVJ and compare those to more sport specific tasks, a weighted sled push (WSP), and a jump stop unanticipated cut (JSUC). American football players classified in low, moderate, or high risk for knee injury from the DVJ moved in a similar pattern when complet...
Fifth metatarsal (5M) fractures are common in a young athletic population, but the risk factors for this injury are not well understood. This study aimed to determine differences in sport-related loading in adolescent American football players with varying bone mineral densities (BMD) of the 5M.
