We will discuss the mechanisms by which dynamic knee stability may be achieved and relate this to issues that interest clinicians and scientists concerned with dynamic knee stability. Emphasis is placed on the neurophysiologic evidence and theory related to neuromuscular control. Specific topics discussed include the ensemble firing of peripheral mechanoreceptors, the potential for muscle stiffness modulation via force and length feedback, postural control synergies, motor programs, and the… CONTINUE READING
