Sex differences in lower extremity coordinative variability during running.

08:00 EDT 25th March 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Sex differences in lower extremity coordinative variability during running."

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.

The purpose of this study was to investigate how lower extremity kinematics and kinetics change when running downhill.

Lower Extremity Stiffness Predicts Ground Reaction Force Loading Rate in Heel-Strike Runners.

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 effects of running a 12-km race on neuromuscular performance measures in recreationally competitive runners.

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...

Gender differences in coordination variability between shank and rearfoot during running.

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....

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
