Still Doing SLR's?

The Effects of Quadriceps Contraction on Different Patellofemoral Alignment Subtypes: An Axial Computed Tomography Study- JOSPT April '09

I know, sometimes the athlete is in so much pain & you have no choice. But if you think you're improving PF kinematics, think again. This study took a look at various types of patellofemoral alignment types & how quadricep contractions influenced them. The study comes to the conclusion that we functional A.T.'s knew all along...that it's the track, not the train.

There's a lot of cool stuff you can do with on ground function if you just can't get the athlete pain free weight bearing. I'll be giving some examples in future posts.
