Abstract

Passive Repetitive Isokinetic (PRI) training was a novel method for improving sport performance (Chiang Liu et al, 2005). As you know it can comprehensively advance muscular power characteristic of an athlete (Hsiang-Hsin Wang et al, 2005). But did you ever think that PRP training program might cause sport injury. It is not clear how much training effect would cause injury. Especially knee joint would sustain the most internal force for lower extremity. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of plymeric training on overuse injuries of the knee. The hypothesis is that the torque of knee joint variables will be greatly affected by injury.
