CONTEXT Very few authors have investigated the relationship between hip-abductor muscle strength and frontal-plane knee mechanics during running. OBJECTIVE To investigate this relationship using a 3-week hip-abductor muscle-strengthening program to identify changes in strength, pain, and biomechanics in runners with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). DESIGN Cohort study. SETTING University-based clinical research laboratory. PATIENTS OR OTHER PARTICIPANTS Fifteen individuals (5 men… CONTINUE READING
