Dynamic Leap and Balance Test (DLBT): Ability to Discriminate Balance Deficits in Individuals with Chronic Ankle Instability.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Jan 24:1-28. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

2 Department of Kinesiology, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA.

Context:: The Dynamic Leap Balance Test (DLBT) is a new dynamic balance task that requires serial changes in base of support (BOS) with alternating limb support and recovery of dynamic stability, as compared to the Y modification of the Star Excursion Balance Test (Y-SEBT), which assesses dynamic stability over an unchanging BOS.

Objectives:: To assess the dynamic balance performance in two different types of dynamic balance tasks, the DLBT and the SEBT, in subjects with unilateral chronic ankle instability (CAI) when compared with healthy. We hypothesized that the DLBT score would significantly differ between the CAI involved and uninvolved limbs (contralateral and healthy matched) and demonstrate a modest (r=. Read More

Realistic Soccer-Specific Virtual Environment Exposes High-Risk Lower Extremity Biomechanics.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Jan 24:1-23. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

1 The SPORT Center, Division of Sports Medicine, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH.

Context:: Laboratory-based biomechanical analyses of sport-relevant movements such as landing and cutting have classically been used to quantify kinematic and kinetic factors in the context of injury risk, which are then used to inform targeted interventions designed to improve risky movement patterns during sport. However, the non-contextual nature of standard assessments presents challenges for assessing sport-relevant skill transfer.

Objective:: It may be more effective to examine injury-risk biomechanics on individuals performing sport-specific tasks within the actual sport environment, or more feasibly, within a simulated sport environment using virtual reality (VR). Read More

Comparison of the Position-Matching and Position-Reproducing Tasks to Detect Deficits in Knee Position Sense After Reconstruction of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament.

J Sport Rehabil 2018 Dec 11:1-23. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

1 Faculty of Sport Sciences, Waseda University, Tokorozawa-city, Saitama, Japan.

Context:: Deficits in knee position sense following reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) can delay an athlete's return to sport participation and increase the risk of re-injury. Deficits in position sense post-reconstruction have been evaluated using either a position-reproducing or position-matching task.

Objective:: The aim of our study was to combine both to determine which assessment would be more effective to identify deficits in knee position sense. Read More

Effective Treatment for Chronic Ankle Instability During Lateral Step-Down - Kinesiology Tape, Resistance Exercise, or Both Accompanied with Heel Raise-Lower Exercise?

J Sport Rehabil 2018 Dec 11:1-31. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

2 Department of Physical Therapy, Chungju University, Chungcheongbuk-do, Republic of Korea.

Context:: Kinesiology tape (KT), multidirectional resistance exercise, and interventions for decreased ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (ROM) are gaining popularity in the treatment of patients with chronic ankle instability (CAI). However, there is limited evidence of the effectiveness of combined interventions in CAI patients.

Objectives:: To compare the effects of KT alone, KT with resistance exercise (KT + resistance), and KT + resistance + heel raise-lower exercise (KT + resistance + heel) on the results of the dynamic balance test (star excursion balance test [SEBT]), functional performance (lateral step-down test), and ankle muscle activation in CAI patients.

Pain Catastrophizing in Collegiate Athletes.

J Sport Rehabil 2018 Dec 11:1-20. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

2 Department of Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY.

Background:: Pain is the most common patient-reported symptom but the perception of pain is complex, differs between individuals and not directly proportional to the extent of injury. The relationship between aberrant pain coping strategies such as pain catastrophizing and the presence of pain in competitive athletes should be further established to employ the most optimal treatment.

Hypothesis:: The hypotheses were that numeric pain rating and pain catastrophizing scores (PCS) would have a moderate to strong relationship in collegiate athletes, and athletes with either a current injury or previous injury, or playing with pain would have significantly higher pain catastrophizing scores compared to non-injured/non-painful athletes.

Landing Kinematics, Sports Performance and Isokinetic Strength in Adolescent Male Volleyball Athletes: Influence of Core Training.

J Sport Rehabil 2018 Dec 11:1-26. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

a Department of Physical Therapy, College of Medicine, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan.

Context:: Core control and strength are important for reducing the risk of lower extremity injury. Current evidence on the effect of core training in male adolescent athletes is limited, and other investigations into the effects of core training often emphasized core strength only.

Objective:: To examine whether core training emphasizing both control and strength of the trunk and hip would improve joint kinematics during landing, sports performance, and lower extremity muscle strength in adolescent male volleyball athletes. Read More

Background:: The knowledge of 3-dimensional (3D) scapular kinematics is essential for understanding the pathological lesions of shoulder and elbow in throwing athletes. Many studies about alterations of resting scapular position, dynamic scapular motion, or scapular dyskinesis(SD) have been conducted, yet none of them have identified a consistent pattern of altered scapular kinematics in throwing athletes.

Hypothesis/purpose:: To analyze the 3D scapular kinematics of dominant and non-dominant arms in baseball players with a pathological condition of shoulder or elbow. Read More
