Does higher anterior knee joint laxity alter landing biomechanics in pubescent girls?

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Abstract of poster presentation presented at 2011 Asics Conference of Science and Medicine in Sport (ACSMS).

    From the onset of puberty females are at a greater risk of sustaining a non-contact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture compared to males. Increased anterior knee laxity (AKL) in females

    has been proposed as a possible mechanism for increased ACL injury risk, due to the associated decrease in knee joint stability during landing movements. Despite this association, there is a

    dearth of literature investigating the effects of increased AKL on lower limb landing biomechanics in adolescent girls.
