It’s not just about the knee in ACL Rehabilitation!

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) has been reported to be effective at restoring function and stability to the knee and improving patient-reported outcomes. However, it does not guarantee an athlete will return to play (RTP) and that re-injury will not occur. This may be due, in part, to the absence of clear criteria identifying the […]

How do running mechanics change with fatigue?

Injury risk during running is associated with high-weekly training distance as well as lack of running experience, putting both competitive long-distance runners and novice runners at risk of developing overuse injuries. The development of overuse injuries has been associated with kinematic variables of all lower limb joints. Some of these variables, such as increased ankle […]

Does fatigue effect landing mechanics in football?

Football is a sport that needs intermittent, non-continuous exercises which includes many sprints of different intensities especially during a match. Unfortunately, high-speed running has also been associated with injury and classified as an intrinsic risk factor. Higher speed of play during competitions may exert more loads or forces on the knee joint, which in turn may […]

Energy flow in the Kinetic Chain in Tennis

kinetic chain

The tennis serve has been reported to be one of the most important strokes for winning a match. This stroke is a sequence of motions referred to as a ‘‘kinetic chain’’ that begins with lower limb actions and is followed by rotations of the trunk and the upper limb. This kinetic chain allows the generation, […]
