The gold standard exercise for recruitment of the lower trapezius is the Y prone exercise which is performed above 90° of shoulder elevation. However, clinicians often prescribe exercises that avoid high elevation postures during early stages of rehabilitation. Comparatively little data exists on relative muscle recruitment during lower arm elevati...
Excessive anterior and posterior pelvic tilts (PT) angles are associated with overuse injuries of the lower limbs and of the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex. There is a lack of evidence that correlates anterior and posterior PT angles with limited hip internal rotation (IR) and external rotation (ER), and hip muscles torque ratios. The purpose of this stu...
Groin injury is a common injury in sports such as soccer. This type of injury is associated with quick change of direction or acceleration, and kicking. Several studies have identified decrease in hip internal (Int) and external (Ext) rotations or decrease in hip adduction (Add) and abduction (Abd) torques ratio as risk factors for groin injury. Ho...
