CHANGES IN HIP FORCE VECTOR AFTER ATHLETIC GROIN PAIN REHABILITATION DURING A RUNNING CUT
Keywords: Athletic groin pain, hip vector, intensity map
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to examine changes in hip force vectors after successful athletic groin pain rehabilitation. Forty athletes with athletic groin pain that underwent a rehabilitation intervention participated in this study. Hip force magnitude, direction and their combination were examined using a continuous waveform analysis. Hip posterior and medial force at the start and end of the movement decreased following rehabilitation, while superior forces increased (over most of the movement cycle). Findings suggest that athletes with groin pain benefit from a rehabilitation intervention that decreases posterior and medial hip joint forces.
