Abstract

Kinematic changes have been correlated with different lower-limb injuries. Movement is influenced by multiple factors and strength is one of the contributors that can influence it. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation among trunk and hip isometric strength with trunk and lower-limb kinematics during a single-leg drop vertical jump. Twenty-three healthy recreational female athletes aged between 18 and 35 years underwent isometric evaluation of hip abductor, hip extensor, and lateral trunk muscle strength and 3-dimensional trunk and lower-limb kinematics during a single-leg drop vertical jump. Pearson's correlation coefficients (r) were calculated to establish the association among hip and trunk strength and trunk, hip, and knee kinematics. As result, no significant correlations were found between the peak and movement excursion values of kinematic and hip and trunk isometric strength data. The lack of correlation between isometric strength and kinematics in healthy female athletes indicates that intervention programs should not be focused solely on strength exercises to influence the movement pattern during single-landing activities.
