Validity and reliability of the Nintendo Wii Balance Board for assessment of standing balance.
It is suggested that the WBB could provide the average clinician with a standing balance assessment tool suitable for the clinical setting, given that it is portable, widely available and a fraction of the cost of a FP. Expand
Intra-rater and inter-rater reliability of a weight-bearing lunge measure of ankle dorsiflexion.
Results indicate excellent reliability for both methods of assessing a DF lunge for both inter- and intra-rater reliability. Expand
Analysis of outcome measures for persons with patellofemoral pain: which are reliable and valid?
The AKPS and VAS for usual or worst pain are reliable, valid, and responsive and are therefore recommended for future clinical trials or clinical practice in assessing treatment outcome in persons with patellofemoral pain. Expand
Delayed onset of electromyographic activity of vastus medialis obliquus relative to vastus lateralis in subjects with patellofemoral pain syndrome.
This finding supports the hypothesized relationship between changes in the timing of activity of the vastimuscles and PFPS and provides theoretical rationale to support physiotherapy treatment commonly used in the management of PFPS. Expand
Risk Factors for Stress Fractures in Track and Field Athletes
The results suggest that it may be possible to identify female athletes most at risk for this overuse bone injury, and multiple logistic regression revealed that age of menarche and calf girth were the best independent predictors of stress fractures in women. Expand
Higher dynamic medial knee load predicts greater cartilage loss over 12 months in medial knee osteoarthritis
Knee loading, in particular the KAM impulse, may be a risk factor for loss of medial tibial cartilage volume as knee load is modifiable, load-modifying treatments may potentially slow disease progression. Expand
Isokinetic strength testing does not predict hamstring injury in Australian Rules footballers.
Isokinetic muscle strength testing was not able to directly discriminate Australian Rules football players at risk for a hamstring injury. Expand
Risk Factors for Stress Fractures
The purpose of this paper is to critically appraise the existing literature by evaluating study design and quality, in order to provide a current synopsis of the known scientific information related to stress fracture risk factors. Expand
Abnormal knee joint position sense in individuals with patellofemoral pain syndrome
The purpose of this cross‐sectional study was to compare knee joint position sense (JPS) in 20 individuals with and 20 without patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Five active tests with ipsilateralExpand
A pilot randomised controlled trial of eccentric exercise to prevent hamstring injuries in community-level Australian Football.
The findings suggest that a simple program of eccentric exercise could reduce the incidence of hamstring injuries in Australian Football but widespread implementation of this program is not likely because of poor compliance. Expand
