ABSTRACT CONTEMPORARY CORRECTIVE EXERCISE TECHNIQUES EMPHASIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF ADEQUATE MOVEMENT ABILITY AND SOFT TISSUE EXTENSIBILITY ARE NOW RELATIVELY COMMON IN MOST STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAMS. DESPITE DEMONSTRATED POTENTIAL FOR PERFORMANCE DEFICIT, PREACTIVITY FLEXIBILITY TRAINING HAS BEEN EMPLOYED AND CONTINUES TO BE USED BY MANY SPORT COACHES. PARTICULARLY, IN THE DEVELOPING ATHLETE, THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MOBILITY AND FLEXIBILITY TRAINING ARE SIGNIFICANT. THE PURPOSE OF THIS… Expand

Current Concepts in the Rehabilitation of the Overhead Throwing Athlete
TLDR
The typical musculoskeletal profile of the overhead thrower and various rehabilitation programs for specific injuries are discussed and structured, multiphase approach with emphasis on controlling inflammation, restoring muscle balance, improving soft tissue flexibility, enhancing proprioception and neuromuscular control is followed.

Effects of Acute Static Stretching of the Throwing Shoulder on Pitching Performance of National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III Baseball Players
TLDR
The results suggest that acute static stretching of the throwing shoulder does not have a significant impact on baseball pitching performance. Expand
Limited ankle dorsiflexion: a predisposing factor to Morbus Osgood Schlatter?
TLDR
Evaluated children with clinical diagnosis of MOS found limited dorsiflexion of the ankle joint might be of significant importance for MOS, and further studies are warranted to evaluate the cause–effect relationship. Expand
Changes in Shoulder and Elbow Passive Range of Motion after Pitching in Professional Baseball Players
TLDR
The results of this study may suggest a newly defined mechanism to range of motion adaptations in the overhead throwing athlete resulting from acute musculoskeletal adaptations, in addition to Potential osseous and capsular adaptations. Expand
Analysis of three-dimensional motion of the glenohumeral joint in impingement syndrome.
TLDR
A comparison of mean values of the motion ranges indicated significant limitations of active mobility in the affected shoulder and there was a statistically significant correlation between the angular values of internal rotation and thevalues of the remaining motion ranges. Expand
Shoulder function and 3-dimensional kinematics in people with shoulder impingement syndrome before and after a 6-week exercise program.
TLDR
The findings suggest a relatively simple exercise program combined with patient education may be effective and merits study in a larger trial using a control group. Expand
ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC STRETCHING ON PEAK TORQUE IN WOMEN
TLDR
Overall, these findings indicated that static stretching impairs maximal force production, and strength and conditioning professionals should consider this before incorporating static stretching in preperformance activities. Expand
Relationship Between Hip and Knee Kinematics in Athletic Women During Cutting Maneuvers: A Possible Link to Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury and Prevention
TLDR
The findings indicate that the mechanisms underlying increased knee abduction measures in athletic women during cutting tasks were primarily coronal plane motions at the hip, and trunk and hip focused strength neuromuscular training may improve the ability of athletic women to increase control of lower-extremity alignment. Expand
ASB clinical biomechanics award winner 2006 prospective study of the biomechanical factors associated with iliotibial band syndrome.
TLDR
Comparisons between a group of female runners who develop iliotibial band syndrome and healthy controls suggest that treatment interventions should focus on controlling these secondary plane movements through strengthening, stretching and neuromuscular re-education. Expand
