so when imbalances occur, alterations in mechanical alignment and load affect the kinetic chain. For example, muscle tightness of the hamstrings pulls the ipsilateral innominate bone of the pelvis posteriorly, shortening the abdominal muscles. In return, the erector spinae and hip flexors become

Participants flexed their knee isometrically against resistance at approximately 20° of knee flexion. Three 7

The GMED MVIC was measured with participants in the side-lying position on a treatment table with the testing limb on top, while the pelvis was stabilized with a

differences could have led to differences in the EMG activity. Gluteus Medius The EMG activity of the GMED ranged from 26.3% (13.4%) to 54.6% (26.1%) MVIC (Table  6 ) during the 8 directions of the SEBT. The highest activity was observed in the medial direction because, during the task, the pelvis of the

Coordination variability between the pelvis and trunk was lower in runners with current low back pain compared

This task is correlated to a forward running technique. 20 Lower-Limb Flexibility Two experienced athletic trainers took flexibility measurements on both legs, with consistent roles in each protocol. The pelvis was stabilized to avoid compensatory movements in hip measurements. The
