Differences and mechanisms underpinning a change in the knee flexion moment while running in stability and neutral footwear among young females.

ABSTRACT: Background:Higher peak external knee flexion moments (KFM) during running has been observed in healthy people wearing athletic footwear compared to barefoot, which may increase risk of knee pathologies such as patellofemoral pain. Currently, no studies have examined whether stability and neutral style athletic shoes influence the peak KFM differently, or explored the underlying biomechanical mechanisms by which footwear alters peak KFM in young females. Methods:Lower limb biomechanics of sixty girls aged between 10 and 25?years old were collected while running in footwear (both stability and neutral) and barefoot. The external peak KFM, sagittal plane kinematics, sagittal plane knee ground reaction force (GRF) lever arm and sagittal plane resultant GRF magnitude were analysed by repeated measures Analysis of Variance. Linear mixed models were fit to identify predictors of a change in peak KFM, and to determine if the effects of these predictors differed between footwear conditions. Results:The peak KFM was higher wearing both shoe styles compared to barefoot (p??0.05). Both shoes also increased kinematic variables at the hip, knee, and ankle (p?
