BACKGROUND The impact force in heel-toe running is an input signal into the body that initiates vibrations of the soft tissue compartments of the leg. These vibrations are heavily damped and the paradigm of muscle tuning suggests the body adapts to different input signals to minimize these vibrations. The objectives of the present study were to investigate the implications of not tuning a muscle properly for a landing with a frequency close to the resonance frequency of a soft tissue… CONTINUE READING
