Effects of verbal, visual and kinesthetic cueing on knee joint mechanics during cutting

Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to determine if different cueing techniques could alter knee mechanics during the cutting maneuver. Twenty competitive female soccer players (age 21.9 ± 3.3 years, height 1.68 ± 0.3 m; mass 68.2 ± 8.2 kg) participated in this study. Each participant performed three trials for each cue: verbal (VER), visual (VIS), and kinesthetic (KIN). A significant omnibus F test was observed for knee flexion range of motion (ROM) and peak knee flexion (PKF), respectively, ( F (3,54) = 5.009, p = 0.004) (F (3,54) = 3.769, p = 0.016). Post hoc comparisons revealed that the KIN cue resulted in higher peak knee (PKF; p =0.048) and knee flexion ROM; p =0.014), while VIS cue also results in higher (PKF; p =0.044) and higher (PKROM; p = .010). Effects can be seen at the knee, hip and torso using different cueing techniques during the two-step cutting maneuver.
