The Influence Of Sport-Related Concussion On Lower Extremity Injury Risk: A Review Of Current Return-To-Play Practices And Clinical Implications, Jason M. Avedesian, Tracey Covassin, Janet S. Dufek

International Journal of Exercise Science

International Journal of Exercise Science 13(3): 873-889, 2020. Sport-related concussions (SRCs) are now classified as a major health concern affecting athletes across all sporting levels, with recent evidence suggesting upwards of 3.8 million SRCs occur each year. Multiple injury surveillance datasets have recently determined that athletes post-SRC, compared to non-concussed counterparts, are at greater risk for lower extremity (LE) injury beyond the resolution of traditional SRC assessment batteries. However, it is presently uncertain if common clinical practices (symptom reporting, neuropsychological (NP) examination, and static postural control analysis) can determine athletes at risk for LE injury following an SRC ...


Effect Of Ankle Joint Position On Triceps Surae Contractile Properties And Motor Unit Discharge Rates, Kalter Hali 2020 The University of Western Ontario

Effect Of Ankle Joint Position On Triceps Surae Contractile Properties And Motor Unit Discharge Rates, Kalter Hali

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The length-tension relationship of the triceps surae (TS) can be altered by changing the knee joint position, ankle joint position or both. However, studies exploring the effect of muscle length on triceps surae (TS) neuromuscular properties have focused only on changes in knee joint position, affecting only two of the three muscle components of the TS. Thus, the purpose of this study is to compare the neuromuscular properties of the three TS muscles during plantar flexion contractions at two ankle joint positions, 20° dorsiflexed (DF) and 20° plantar flexed (PF). Maximal isometric voluntary strength (MVC), voluntary activation, and evoked contractile ...
