Handle with care: How sports equipment affects biomechanics and injury risk
from Lower Extremity Review
If you’re walking down the street carrying two bags of groceries, you’ll move differently than when you’re walking unencumbered. Taking that idea a step further, it makes sense intuitively that carrying a lacrosse stick, football, or any other sports implement will affect an athlete’s biomechanics. This phenomenon, often observed anecdotally by lower extremity clinicians, is increasingly becoming a focus of biomechanical research.
