Movement variability in injured and uninjured populations

Are differences in lower limb movement variability associated with injury?

The authors of this review found a trend for injured populations to display greater lower limb movement variability during dynamic tasks (e.g., running, walking, hopping) when compared with uninjured controls.

This suggests there may be an association between the degree of movement variability and injury. However, high-quality prospective studies are still needed to establish if these changes precede injury or are caused by it.
