Alyssa C. Adams, Kelly B. Fleming and Patricia M. Tripp

athletic training staff with pain in her left hip at the beginning of competition season. She reported no previous history of hip, groin, or pelvis pathology, but did have a history of a pars fracture at L2 and L5 and a herniated disc at T12. Her chief complaint was left hip pain initially originating

The importance of lower-extremity function in baseball pitching is well recognized. In particular, the concern with hip function of baseball pitchers has been growing recently. The hip function is involved in the motion and stability of the pelvis, weight shift from a pivot leg (leg on the same

recreational runners according to differences in gait kinematics at the ankle, knee, and hip joints as well as the foot and pelvis segments in all 3 planes of motion. We hypothesized that we could separate and classify competitive and recreational runners and that the projected differences between groups would

, handheld bottles restrict natural motion of the control elbow, minimize trunk-to-pelvis crossover, and shift the COM for stability. Partially full bottles introduce a complicating factor of sloshing when moved. Sloshing fluid mass from bottles in the hand or worn at the waist creates momentum forces that

An estimate of the displacement of the pelvis center of mass in the medial–lateral direction (displacement of the pelvis ML-COM) was calculated by averaging the medial–lateral displacement of the anterior and posterior

Deep water running research to date has mainly focused on its cardiovascular effects. 2 , 10 Kaneda et al 8 has reported increased obliquus externus abdominis and erector spinae (ES) muscle activity for trunk and pelvis control during DWR compared with walking on land (LW). However, that study did

suit that would functionally support the trunk over the pelvis and leg could be a solution to avoid trunk positioning in the opposite direction to the intended movement. Such apparel would work as external trunk stabilizers to improve trunk positioning during various tasks, especially lateral movements

A PCA was performed to explore the variance in the selected kinematic variables and to reduce the high number of available parameters. A

all medical care visits attributed to this condition. 2 Females are 2.23 times more likely to be diagnosed with PFPS, 3 and this gender difference is thought to be a result of females having a wider pelvis, which may alter lower-extremity kinematics. It is often referred to as “runner’s knee
