BACKGROUND It is hypothesized that patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) have hip and core muscle weakness leading to dynamic malalignment of the lower extremity. Thus, hip strengthening is a common PFPS treatment approach. PURPOSE To determine changes in hip strength, core endurance, lower extremity biomechanics, and patient outcomes after(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of the female athlete triad (low energy availability, menstrual dysfunction, and low bone mineral density) in high school varsity athletes in a variety of sports compared with sedentary students/control subjects. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Academic medical center in the Midwest. PARTICIPANTS Eighty varsity(More)
There has been an explosion in sports participation, especially for women, in the last 35 years mainly because of Title IX. In 2005-2006, nearly 3 million girls and 4.2 million boys participated in high school athletics, and many more participated in club sports and recreational activities. On the other end of the spectrum, the prevalence of obesity in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To apply a recently developed coasting deceleration method to measure rolling and aerodynamic resistances opposing wheelchair propulsion on a variety of different wheelchairs and wheel combinations and on two different ground surfaces. DESIGN For each condition, 20-25 trials were performed across a speed range of approximately 70-300 m/min. The(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine if aerobic fitness varies between women with and without chronic discogenic non-radicular low back pain. DESIGN Prospective cross-sectional descriptive study. RESULTS : Analysis of variance revealed that maximal oxygen consumption was lower (P = 0.05) in women with low back pain compared with the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of the female athlete triad in club triathletes. DESIGN Cross-sectional. SETTING Academic medical center in the midwestern United States. PARTICIPANTS Fifteen women (mean age, 35+/-6 y). INTERVENTIONS Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Disordered eating and menstrual status were determined by(More)
BACKGROUND Recognition of the Female Athlete Triad (disordered eating, amenorrhea, osteoporosis) has increased significantly since it was defined in 1992 by the American College of Sports Medicine. However, knowledge and treatment of the Female Athlete Triad is still lacking among physicians and medical personnel. PURPOSE We surveyed physicians, physical(More)
While the benefits of physical activity are numerous, the female athlete triad poses a significant health risk to young athletes. Emerging research links the triad to endothelial dysfunction--a sentinel event in cardiovascular disease--suggesting that this complex interplay of metabolic and endocrine factors may be described more accurately as a tetrad.(More)
Running often can cause injuries to the knee as a result of kinetic chain dysfunctions. Addressing these dysfunctions in rehabilitation can prevent future injury. Stress fractures often occur in runners who engage in training errors. Female runners are particularly susceptible to stress fractures, especially in the setting of the female athlete triad.(More)
