Impact Of Hip Abduction Elastic-Resisted Neuromuscular Feedback On Frontal Plane Knee Kinematics In Female Volleyball Athletes

TheraBand CLX Squat

Summary

Female athletes are generally at higher risk of ACL injury resulting from poor landing mechanics, specifically related to valgus knee collapse. Researchers wanted to know if performing a squat exercise with TheraBand CLX improved knee biomechanics during jump landing in female adolescent volleyball players. 20 players were randomly assigned to either the CLX exercise group or a control group and were assessed for their knee collapse (knee and ankle separation) while jump landing before and after a 1-hour practice. The CLX exercise group had significantly better alignment than the control group immediately after training, and maintained the improvement after practice. A simple CLX-resisted squat exercise may be beneficial in reducing the risk of ACL injury by improving knee biomechanics during games and practices, although more research is needed.
