Abstract
  • ABSTRACT Johanna Leigh White: Can an Integrated Corrective Exercise Intervention Mitigate Range of Motion Changes Post High Intensity Exercise in Female Athletes? (Under the direction of Darin Padua) Decreased range of motion has become a risk factor associated with ACL injuries. There is a need for an intervention to improve range of motion post fatigue. The purpose of this study is to determine if a corrective exercise intervention helps mitigate lower extremity range of motion post an acute high intensity exercise exposure, and determine if there is a change in range of motion post an acute high intensity exercise exposure. 20 healthy, physically active females between 18-24 years old were randomized to control or treatment groups. Session I subjects had measurements taken, exposed to high intensity exercise and measurements taken post. At 24 hours subjects had measurements taken before and after intervention. Time pre-intervention to post-intervention hamstring showed a significant change (p = .047) in the intervention group. From baseline to post fatigue, 24 hours post fatigue there was a significant decrease in hamstring motion (p = .021).
