BACKGROUND Patellofemoral joint osteoarthritis is a highly prevalent disease and an important source of pain and disability. Nonetheless, biomechanical risk factors associated with this disease remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to compare biomechanical factors that are associated with patellofemoral joint loading during walking between(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to examine the influence of sagittal plane trunk posture on lower extremity energetics during running. METHODS Forty asymptomatic recreational runners (20 males and 20 females) ran overground at a speed of 3.4 m·s(-1). Sagittal plane trunk kinematics and lower extremity kinematics and energetics during the stance phase of running(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with acetabular cartilage defects reported increased pain and disability compared to those without acetabular cartilage defects. The specific effects of acetabular cartilage defects on lower extremity coordination patterns are unclear. The purpose of this study was to determine hip and knee joint coordination variability during gait in(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional, repeated-measures. Objectives To examine the association between sagittal plane trunk posture and patellofemoral joint (PFJ) stress, and to determine whether modifying sagittal plane trunk posture influences PFJ stress during running. BACKGROUND Patellofemoral pain is the most common injury among runners and is thought to be(More)
