OBJECTIVE To determine if lower extremity functional tests are reliable and valid screening tests of lower extremity dynamic alignment in healthy young athletes. DESIGN Quantitative experimental test-re-test. METHODS Peak three-dimensional pelvis and lower extremity kinematics were quantified in 23 uninjured young athletes (11 ± 1 years) during three lower extremity functional tests (Small Knee Bend [SKB], Single Leg SKB and Drop Jump) and Running. A nine camera motion analysis system… CONTINUE READING
