Proximal factors such as excessive frontal plane pelvis and trunk motion have been postulated to be biomechanical risk factors associated with iliotibial band syndrome. In addition, lateral core endurance deficiencies may be related to increased pelvis and trunk motion during running. The purpose of this cross-sectional investigation was to determine if(More)
Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) is a common overuse knee injury that is twice as likely to afflict women compared to men. Lower extremity and trunk biomechanics during running, as well as hip abductor strength and iliotibial band flexibility, are factors believed to be associated with ITBS. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to determine if(More)
Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) is a common overuse running injury. Atypical secondary plane lower-extremity and trunk biomechanics during running are likely to play a role in the etiology of ITBS [1, 2]. Proximal factors such as a large hip adduction angle may increase the tensile strain in the iliotibial band during the stance phase of running [1]. A lack(More)
Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) is the second most commonly reported overuse running injury [1]. The iliotibial band is a thickened lateral component of the tensor fasciae latae [2]. This band of dense fibrous connective tissue traverses down the lateral thigh and passes over the lateral femoral epicondyle before inserting onto the anterolateral aspect of(More)
Kinematic and kinetic analyses are routinely implemented to determine if gait differences exist between runners with and without a history of knee injury. Hip and knee kinematic differences have been reported between knee injured and non-injured runners. Yet, there is no consensus on whether these differences are the primary variables contributing to knee(More)
Peak joint angles assumed during the stance phase of running may indicate a runner's ability to sense limb position in space. Joint position sense can be assessed through weight bearing and non-weight bearing tasks. The purpose of this investigation was to determine if weight bearing and non-weight bearing knee and hip joint replication tasks elicited(More)
Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) is a common knee overuse injury among female runners. Atypical discrete trunk and lower extremity biomechanics during running may be associated with the etiology of ITBS. Examining discrete data points limits the interpretation of a waveform to a single value. Characterizing entire kinematic and kinetic waveforms may provide(More)
