Basketball is a sport that involves multiple impacts with the ground through a variety of moves such as running Jumping, and cutting. Repetitive impacts have been associated with stress-related injuries in other sports such as running. The purpose of this investigation was to gain an understanding of the typical stresses the body experiences during common basketball moves. To this end, the ground reaction forces from 24 players from five professional basketball teams were studied. In addition… 
Balance disorders caused by running and jumping occurring in young basketball players.
TLDR
The research results indicate that the employed movement activities brought about significant changes in the process of keeping balance of basketball player in the standing position which, after the run performed, remain on a similar level to the series of jumps being performed.
BIOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS OF THE JUMPING ABILITY IN BASKETBALL
Basketball players usually score points during the game using the jump shot. For this reason, the jump shot is considered to be the most important element of technique in basketball and requires a
Biomechanical Analysis of the Jump Shot in Basketball
TLDR
This study compares the biomechanical characteristics of the lower limbs during a jump shot without the ball and a countermovement jump without an arm swing to suggest a very high performance level in the jump shot in the studied group and a maximum utilisation of their motor abilities.
Effects of footwear choice amongst field hockey participants on factors influencing overuse injuries
Abstract Field hockey is a popular sport played worldwide. Due to the demands of the game, injuries are common, restricting participation. Injuries occur due to a single traumatic event or are due
Decision Making Influences Tibial Impact Accelerations During Lateral Cutting.
TLDR
Both males and females demonstrated higher impact accelerations and a trend toward greater intertrial variability for the unplanned cutting trials (vs preplanned cuts).
Kinetics and perception of basketball landing in various heights and footwear cushioning
TLDR
Determination of shoe cushioning performance, regardless of shoe midsole materials and constructions, would be capable in order to identify optimal shoe models for better protection against tibial stress fracture.
Loading and performance of the support leg in kicking.

TLDR
To punt kick longer, a straighter support leg, less time on the ground and stronger braking should be encouraged, and Conditioning the support leg to provide stronger braking potential is recommended.
IMPULSE AND PROFILE OF GROUND REACTION FORCES IN BASKETBALL MANEUVERS IN NEW AND STRUCTURALLY DAMAGED SHOES
The purpose of this study was to report typical ground reaction force curves and mean impulse in both new shoes and shoes with obvious structural damage. Ground reaction forces for eight maneuvers
Analysis of the vertical ground reaction forces and temporal factors in the landing phase of a countermovement jump.
TLDR
It is shown that increasing the time F2 appears makes, however, the whole impact absorption shorter in du-ration, and increasing T2, with the objective of decreasing F2, makes the wholeimpact absorption shorter and the jump landing faster.
Effects of various midsole densities of basketball shoes on impact attenuation during landing activities.
TLDR
The results showed limited evidence of impact-attenuating benefits of the soft midsole in the basketball shoes, and knee joint extensors were shown to be dominant in attenuating the forefoot impact force across the landing heights.

A Kinematic Profile of Skills in Professional Basketball Players
Overuse injuries are common in basketball. To gain insight into their etiology and relationship to mechanics, researchers and clinicians need an understanding of the normal biomechanics of the sport.
The injury rate in professional basketball
TLDR
The authors conclude that the inci dence of severe injury in professional basketball is low, and time loss from play due to injury was amazingly consistent for each specific in jury.
Kinematics and Impulse Characteristics of Drop Landings from Three Heights
During a landing impact, the human body is exposed to large forces and moments that create the potential for injury. To determine the effect of impact velocity and landing experience on the strategy
Ground reaction forces in running: a reexamination.
TLDR
Three dimensional graphic displays showed that, despite considerable group variability in medial-lateral GRF-time histories, consistency was evident in the patterns of individuals across speeds, and right-left asymmetries were clearly shown in these displays.
Ground reaction forces in distance running.
TLDR
Ground reaction forces and center of pressure (C of P) patterns were studied in 17 subjects running at 4.5 ms −1 and the implications in the areas of running mechanics, shoe design and sports injury are discussed.
A comparison of men's and women's professional basketball injuries
TLDR
The body part most frequently injured on both teams was the ankle, and women sustained significantly more knee and thigh injuries as well as sprains, strains, and contusions while men had significantly more muscle spasms.

TLDR
The author describes common basketball injuries-contusions, sprains, strains, inflammatory conditions, and stress fractures and outlines steps for diagnosis and treatment and makes recommendations.
Injuries in Swedish elite basketball.
TLDR
All Swedish male and female elite basketball players were interviewed concerning their injuries during 1981/1982 and an ankle twist was the most common injury while a knee injury was involved in 18%.
The shock attenuation role of the ankle during landing from a vertical jump.
TLDR
Three landing surfaces were used to examine a hypothesized increased shock attenuation role of the ankle with increased damping demands, suggesting that the entrenched kinematics of landing surpassed the introduced range of surface cushioning.
Mechanisms of shock attenuation via the lower extremity during running.

TLDR
It is found that as shock attenuation capacity increases, rearfoot control decreases, and this causes other injuries due to the lack of control, and a balance has to be found between the two and this is suggested as an area for further research.
