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.
