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.
