Running and Knee Pain

Kinetic chian theory helps clinicians understand the relationship between pain site and pain source. This article highlights the role of the hip & knee movement in PFP during runnning. It compliments other similar articles and is in agreement that hip abduction and rotational dysfunction at the hip are consistant patterns in the PFP poulation. Proximal […]

Core Stability and Injury in Athletes

Core stability is currenty thought to reduce injury rates. This article highlights the role of the hip in injury prevention. Greater clinical scrutiny of hip strength may assist clinicians when attempting to reduce future injury rates in their athletes. Core Stability Measures as Risk Factors for Lower Extremity Injury in Athletes Leetun, Darin et al, […]

Athletic Injuries

The relationship between site of pain and dysfunction has been discussed. The kinetic chain concept described by various authors including Butler offeres an explanation of pain distal to the site of dysfunction. This article discusses this concept in female PFP participants. Hip and Groin Injuries in Athlete Anderson, Kyle et al, 2001 Study Design: Although […]
