Injury prevention

Document Type



The purpose of the study was to investigate if an intervention program with focus on neuromuscular and feedback training in a home-based setting with supervision improves the leg alignment in recreational volleyball and basketball players. 16 players ran a 6-week neuromuscular intervention program in a home setting with video-based supervision. The control group just followed the regular training program. Before and after the intervention the DKV was measured as the peak knee valgus angle during the video-recorded landing after a lateral jump from a box using a 2D video analysis tool. While the DKV improved in the training group, no changes were found for the control group. The intervention was effective and can be recommended as a knee-injury mitigation program.
