Gender differences in core strength and lower extremity function during static and dynamic single-leg squat tests

Abstract

This chapter discusses the principles of core strength and stability with regard to noncontact ACL injury. The single-leg squat test is described as a useful clinical tool to determine core stability. Associations between core strength, neuromuscular activity, and lower extremity function during this test are detailed. In addition, a newer dynamic single- leg squat test is described. These assessment tools are recommended to determine impairments, prescribe individualized interventions, and assess those athletes who may benefit from an ACL injury prevention training program.
