Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Risk Is Modified By The Timing Of The Successful Identification Of Directional Cues, Mitchell Lewis Stephenson

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Despite our best efforts, anterior cruciate ligament injury rates remain high in many athletic populations. Over the past two decades, investigations have sought to identify the potential role cognition may play in the functional injury mechanism. Across the body of literature, there is a general consensus that rapid, reactive environments found in team sports increase injury risk. But the precise biomechanical change in lower extremity control has been inconsistently identified across multiple investigations. We previously identified that an important, often uncontrolled component of rapid reactive movements is the timing of the directional cue to which the athlete responds. Reductions in ...
