Examining Different Cueing Strategies on Landing Mechanics

Abstract (Summary)

Improper movement patterns during landing could place excess stress on joints. Correction of landing mechanics is necessary to decrease the risk of injury. Thirty-seven recreationally active college students participated in the study; 16 males (age 21.8 ± 2.08 years; height 174.5 ± 9.55 cm; mass 76.73 ± 11.70 kg) and 21 females (age 21 ± 1.22 years; height 162.9 ± 7.724 cm; mass 65.04 ± 15.04 kg). The participants performed 12 trials of a drop vertical jump (DVJ) task; three trials of each: baseline (BAS), kinesthetic (KIN) cue, verbal (VER) cue, and visual (VIS) cue. A repeated measures ANOVA with a Greenhouse-Geisser correction determined that mean LESS scores were statistically significantly different between pre- and post-cueing for KIN, VER, and VIS (F(2.856, 102.799) = 69.608 p < .05). A repeated measures ANOVA with a Greenhouse-Geisser correction determined that mean peak ground reaction forces (GRF) were statistically significantly different between pre- and post-cueing for VER and VIS for the left leg (F(2.462, 88.618) = 5.931 p < .05) and VER for the right leg (F(1.986, 71.498) = 3.104 p < .05). Cueing can be beneficial to improve landing mechanics and decrease risk of injuries.
