Hip Muscle Strength

The American Journal of Sports Medicine published, Hip Muscle Strength Predicts Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in Male and Female Athletes.

Over time studies have found that impaired hip strength may cause abnormal movement patterns of the trunk, knee and hip. This diminished strength effects neuromuscular control and positioning of the knee, thus abnormal movement patterns due to lack of strength increase the risk of non-contact ACL injury.

Measures of preseason isometric hip abduction and external rotation have been shown to predict future non-contact anterior cruciate ligament injury in competitive athletes. This study’s data suggest that when applying screening procedures for participation, assessment of isometric hip abduction and/or external rotation strength should be inclusive.

Preventative Sports Medicine is the hallmark of any strength and conditioning program. Utilization of the Pendulum Hip Press assures strong hips lowering risk… as the machine was specifically designed to target this critical sports performance area.
