PURPOSE Our primary purpose was to determine whether balance impairments were associated with functional ankle instability (FAI). METHODS Our literature search consisted of four parts: 1) an electronic search of PubMed, CINAHL, pre-CINAHL, and SPORTDiscus; 2) a forward search of articles selected from the electronic search using the Science Citation(More)
OBJECTIVE As more women enter the military, it is important to understand how different risks and lifestyle factors influence physical fitness and injury among women in both active duty (AD) and National Guard/Reserve (NG/R). Women in military service are less fit and more likely to suffer musculoskeletal injuries during physical training than men. They(More)
Abnormal movement patterns have been identified as important prospective risk factors for lower extremity injury, including anterior cruciate ligament injury. Specifically, poor neuromuscular control during the early landing phase has been associated with increased injury risk. Although it is commonly assumed that higher division collegiate athletes(More)
CONTEXT Identifying neuromuscular screening factors for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a critical step toward large-scale deployment of effective ACL injury-prevention programs. The Landing Error Scoring System (LESS) is a valid and reliable clinical assessment of jump-landing biomechanics. OBJECTIVE To investigate the ability of the LESS to(More)
BACKGROUND Identification of risk factors for lower extremity (LE) injury in sport and military/first-responder occupations is required to inform injury prevention strategies. OBJECTIVE To determine if poor movement quality is associated with LE injury in sport and military/first-responder occupations. MATERIALS AND METHODS 5 electronic databases were(More)
BACKGROUND Changes in movement patterns have been repeatedly observed immediately after completing a lower extremity injury prevention program. However, it is not known if movement pattern changes are maintained after discontinuing the training program. HYPOTHESIS The ability to maintain movement pattern changes after training has ceased may be influenced(More)
