Biomechanical Measures of Neuromuscular Control and Valgus Loading of the Knee Predict Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Risk in Female Athletes: A Prospective Study
TLDR
Knee motion and knee loading during a landing task are predictors of anterior cruciate ligament injury risk in female athletes and may help develop simpler measures of neuromuscular control that can be used to direct female athletes to more effective, targeted interventions. Expand
Biomechanical Measures during Landing and Postural Stability Predict Second Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury after Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction and Return to Sport
TLDR
Altered neuromuscular control of the hip and knee during a dynamic landing task and postural stability deficits after ACLR are predictors of a second anterior cruciate ligament injury after an athlete is released to return to sport. Expand
Valgus knee motion during landing in high school female and male basketball players.
TLDR
The absence of dynamic knee joint stability may be responsible for increased rates of knee injury in females but is not normally measured in athletes before participation, no method for accurate and practical screening and identification of athletes at increased risk of ACL injury is currently available. Expand
NEUROMUSCULAR TRAINING IMPROVES PERFORMANCE AND LOWER‐EXTREMITY BIOMECHANICS IN FEMALE ATHLETES
TLDR
The hypothesis that the combination of multiple-injury prevention-training components into a comprehensive program improves measures of performance and movement biomechanics is supported. Expand
Prevention of non-contact anterior cruciate ligament injuries in soccer players. Part 1: Mechanisms of injury and underlying risk factors
TLDR
The identification of those athletes at increased risk may be a salient first step before designing and implementing specific pre-season and in-season training programs aimed to modify the identified risk factors and to decrease ACL injury rates. Expand
Decrease in neuromuscular control about the knee with maturation in female athletes.
TLDR
After girls mature, they land from a jump differently than do boys, as measured kinematically and kinetically, as well as between the maximum valgus angles of their dominant and nondominant lower extremities after maturation. Expand
THE EFFECTS OF PLYOMETRIC VS.DYNAMIC STABILIZATION AND BALANCE TRAINING ON POWER, BALANCE, AND LANDING FORCE IN FEMALE ATHLETES
TLDR
This study suggests that both PLYO and BAL training are effective at increasing measures of neuromuscular power and control and may further maximize the effectiveness of preseason training for female athletes. Expand
The Effects of Plyometric versus Dynamic Stabilization and Balance Training on Lower Extremity Biomechanics
TLDR
Both plyometric and balance training can reduce lower extremity valgus measures in female athletes and should be included in injury-prevention protocols. Expand
Gender differences in the kinematics of unanticipated cutting in young athletes.
TLDR
Gender differences in knee and ankle kinematics in the frontal plane during cutting may help explain the gender differences in ACL injury rates and implement dynamic neuromuscular training in young athletes with a focus on frontal plane motion to help prevent ACL injuries and their long-term debilitating effects. Expand
Neuromuscular training improves performance on the star excursion balance test in young female athletes.
TLDR
Female soccer players demonstrated an improved performance on the star excursion balance test (SEBT) after NMTP that focused on core stability and lower extremity strength. Expand
