  • PURPOSE Recent epidemiological research has revealed that gender differences exist in concussion incidence but no study has investigated why females may be at greater risk of concussion. Our purpose was to determine whether gender differences existed in head-neck segment kinematic and neuromuscular control variables responses to an external force application with and without neck muscle preactivation. METHODS Forty (20 females and 20 males) physically active volunteers participated in the… CONTINUE READING
