Anterior Pelvic Tilt (APT) is theorized to be an intrinsic risk factor for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. There is little research to substantiate this claim, and no reliable, valid, easy, and clinically relevant test to assess it. The purpose of this study is to determine what correlations exist between APT, and various bony and neuromuscular characteristics. To accomplish this, differences in Lumbo-Pelvic Hip Complex (LPHC) electromyography (EMG), kinematics, Range of Motion (ROM), boney alignment, and the Double Leg Lowering Test (DLLT) will be compared among physically active participants.
