She has an overall decreased step length which is greatest on her left. Her left heel does not make contact with the floor. These observed deviations indicate that Mrs Ogle has a lack of left dorsiflexion range at her ankle. 1.0 Stance phase 1.1 Initial contact to loading response Mrs Ogle’s heel should be the first thing to contact the floor (heel strike).1 From initial contact to loading response her hip should be in about 20 of flexion, her knee should move from five degrees to 15 of flexion and her ankle should move from neutral to five degrees of plantarflexion.1…

    What would happen if we had no ankles? Ankles are crucial to our movement and play a huge part in moving our feet and walking. The ankle is a large joint made up of three main bones. These three main bones are the tibia, the fibula and the talus which all join together to make the ankle joint which helps control movement in your foot.The ankle contributes to a lot of lower limb stability which allows humans to run, jump and perform various other activities which require moving.The ankles…

    Being a biarticular muscle group it may be stretched to extremes. When hamstring tears occur during kicking, either slow or fast movement, it involves concurrent hip flexion and knee extension. At deceleration, these muscles will contract, while being promptly lengthened. Therefore, they are performing eccentric contractions (Garrett et al, 1990.). It is well established that repeated eccentric contractions have the potential to damage muscle fibres (Armstrong et al,…

    importance because it helped to keep subjects in their appropriate position. Kinematic data was retrieved by using a Pro-Reflex Motion Analysis System at 240-Hz. Ground Reaction Force (GRF) was analyzed by a force platform at 1200-HZ, and maximum vertical jump was inferred once the subject lost contact with the ground. Reflective markers were placed on the subjects’ acromion process, great trochanter, lateral femoral condyle, lateral malleolus, and base of 5th metatarsal. The resultant movement…
