What’s This Research About?

This study examines the relationship between ankle dorsiflexioin (DF) and Range of Motion (ROM) on hip and knee kinematics during a lateral (sideways) step-down task. In other words, how does the ankle affect the hip? Stepping down is considered a functional task; very few studies have looked at whether ankle DF is linked to hip kinematics during a lateral movement. In addition, most studies examine lower limb kinematics during two-legged movements. Single leg movements may require more frontal and transverse plane control.
