Differences in coordinative variability have been previously reported between healthy and injured runners. Many running-related injuries have a sex bias, particularly patellofemoral pain (PFP), as female runners are approximately twice as likely to develop PFP compared to males. However, very little is currently known regarding sex differences in coordinative variability during running.

Name: Gait & posture
The purpose of this study was to investigate how lower extremity kinematics and kinetics change when running downhill.
High vertical ground reaction force (vGRF) loading rates are thought to contribute to lower extremity injuries in runners. Given that elevated lower extremity stiffness has been reported to be associa...
The number of individuals participating in organised races is increasing, with few studies undertaken in ecologically-valid settings. Running involves cyclical movements and activation of lower-extrem...
Female recreational runners are 2-3 times more likely to suffer from knee injury compared with male runners. However, the exact reason for this gender difference regarding knee injury remains unclear....
Bekraoui, N, Boussaidi, L, Cazorla, G, and Léger, L. Oxygen uptake, heart rate, and lactate responses for continuous forward running and stop-and-go running with and without directional changes. J St...
Inter-individual variability in energetic cost of running may be partly explained by lower limbs mechanical characteristics. The transposition of muscle mechanical model with two component...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of telehealth via video feedback to transition rear foot strike runners to non-heel strike runner following a lower extremity inju...
The focus of this study is to explore the effect of upper and lower extremity chiropractic adjustments (manipulation) as well as surface condition (hard surface vs rocker board) on multise...
Background: Lower extremity edema is often seen after exercise in healthy individuals, especially sprinters, in sports physical therapy practice. Edema is defined as the excessive fluid ac...
The LEAP protocol is a prospective cohort study of dysvascular patients designed to determine whether implementation of a multi-disciplinary lower extremity amputation protocol in the peri...
Congenital structural abnormalities of the LOWER EXTREMITY.
The region of the lower limb in animals, extending from the gluteal region to the FOOT, and including the BUTTOCKS; HIP; and LEG.
The bones of the upper and lower LEG. They include the PELVIC BONES.
The inferior part of the lower extremity between the KNEE and the ANKLE.
An activity in which the body is propelled by moving the legs rapidly. Running is performed at a moderate to rapid pace and should be differentiated from JOGGING, which is performed at a much slower pace.
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
