STUDY DESIGN Randomized controlled experimental design. OBJECTIVES To examine the effects of verbal instructions related to control of joint kinematics and auditory feedback on lowering the vertical peak ground reaction forces associated with landing from a jump in children. BACKGROUND The majority of children's injuries are associated with activities that involve jumping and landing. Instructions related to joint motion may assist children in decreasing landing forces and thus reduce the… CONTINUE READING
