Pelvic and hip kinematics during single-leg drop-landing are altered in sports participants with long-standing groin pain

A new cross sectional study shows: “Participants with groin pain landed with more downward lateral pelvic tilt (0.77°, p = 0.01, r = 0.35), hip abduction (2.05°, p < 0.001. r = 0.49), and hip external rotation (0.86°, p = 0.03, r = 0.29) at initial contact and more pelvic internal rotation (1.06°, p = 0.02, r = 0.30) at lowest vertical position than the healthy controls. Conclusions Sports participants with…
