TOO MANY KNEE INJURIES ARE LOCO MOTION

The human (Homo sapien-sapiens, modern anatomical cognitive human, created 50,000-70,000 years ago) knee evolved • for forward and backward locomotion, • when in pursuit of food and reproduction. • The ligaments, supporting the knee for human locomotion, evolved like the brake pads on a Ford 150 truck, • evolved to prevent the stress and torques […]

BASKETBALL LOCOMOTION AND KNEE INJURY

Human locomotion requires specific movement configurations of all body anatomy. Examples are walking, running, jumping, lifting, throwing, striking and swimming. Sideways locomotion is not one of the customary human locomotion movements. It is important to have proficient mechanics during walking and running locomotion customary for human running and walking forward. Excellent mechanics result in less […]
