Abstract

This study may advance our understanding of potential compensatory strategies about the hip which theoretically may result from previous lower extremity injury or injuries which are incompletely rehabilitated. Additionally, this study provides some reasoning to support the screening of hip strength during the pre-participation physical, as it may be an important factor to prevent recurrent injury.
