holding a titanium bar connected to the DOT unit for the duration of the treatment while the researcher was connected through an electrode on their forearm held in place by an armband. Talcum powder was applied to the area of treatment to reduce friction from the gloves and moisture from the skin of the

modalities with good empirical results, but no studies have evaluated the effects of DF in the treatment of patients with PFPS. Diacutaneous fibrolysis is a noninvasive physiotherapeutic technique, developed following Cyriax deep friction massage principles, used to treat the mechanical or inflammatory pain

alterations to in-shoe friction and/or pressure distributions, making inferences around the isolated taping effect void. This should be also addressed in future research. Conclusions Our study shows that even limited tape straps are capable of altering ankle joint kinematics prior to TD during the landing

skating test is another potential limitation. Skating on a level grade can be technically too difficult and might lead to the test finishing without exerting the highest levels of power due to lack of resistance and small friction. This might be especially true for recreational skaters, hockey players

abilities to control grip force appropriately tuned for given friction between the digits and object held by the two digits ( Cole, 1991 ), and to control the force directions by the two digits and the moments acting on freely movable objects ( Parikh & Cole, 2012 ).

minute. After 2 minutes of active recovery, athletes performed 15 seconds of acceleration at 70 rpm with work resistance set at 0.025 kg per kg body mass. 20 Then, the full load was used with frictional resistance at 0.075 kg per kg body mass for each participant. 21 To calculate the relative power

segmental longitudinal axes. For the supporting limb, while not exactly parallel with the rotational axis of the pirouette, these longitudinal axes are most closely aligned with the vertical. The frictional torque around the vertical as the foot rotates against the ground could translate to joints along the
