Stair Descent in Females With and Without PFPS

This article compliments previous studies investigating hip control and strength in more distal pain syndromes. It develops kinetic chain theory helping clinicians understand the relationship between pain site and pain source. A recurrent theme in the literature shows that hip dysfunction is a consistant patterns in the PFP population. It is contrary to othher stidues who found differences in hip movement […]

Hip Abductor Weakness in Distance Runners with ITB Syndrome

This article compliments Dierks study. It develops kinetic chian theory helps clinicians understand the relationship between pain site and pain source. It highlights the role of the hip in ITB syndrome. An emergent theme shows that hip dysfunction is a consistant patterns in the ITB poulation.

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 […]

Influences on Hip / Knee Kinematics (movement) in Runners

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.

Running patterns and style

Clinicians and strength and conditioning coaches frequently work alongside each other. However athletes often leave the care of one and transfer to the other. This article suggests that both professionals are working towards the same goal – efficiency of movement. Read it through and see how if it changes your perspective of the current boundaries […]
