The PRACTICAL-LOW condition (an absolute stretch

the lateral left thigh (LThigh) and base of the sacrum (S1) were used for analyses. A force plate (BP400600 NC; AMTI, Watertown, MA) was mounted on the seat to capture surface reaction forces under the thighs and buttocks, sampled at 200 Hz, in order to identify sit-to-stand-to-sit events. Force plate

after a standardized FR intervention on the lateral thigh. Stiffness patterns, as absolute SWV, were assessed using ARFI elastosonography, which was conducted in 40 healthy athletes. The athletes were separated into 2 groups according to their FR experience (20 EA and 20 NEA). ARFI elastosonography is a

The swelling values were recorded as swelling on knee, thigh, and calf, respectively, by using a measuring tape from midpatella and 10.0 cm above and below midpatella (Figure  2A ).
