We quantified the lower extremity dynamics developed during the volleyball spike and block jumps to find out if predictive relations exist between jump dynamics and patellar tendinitis. Lower extremity movement biomechanics were analyzed for 10 members of the 1994 Canadian Men's National Volleyball Team (all right-handed hitters). Based on physical examination, 3 of the 10 players had patellar tendon pain associated with patellar tendinitis at the time of testing. In masked biomechanical and… CONTINUE READING
