Welcome to Thieme E-Books & E-Journals
There is running-related literature that suggest that extremes of anatomic variation and malalignment may predispose runners and military populations engaged in running-related activities to musculoskeletal overuse injury.
The literature regarding leg-length inequality as a risk factor for RRI is equivocal in adult competitive and recreational runners 11 - 21 and military training populations.
The author has previously reported on several risk factors in a large prospective observational cohort study.
Thus, the primary purposes of the current study were to 1 describe the prevalence of leg-length inequality among female and male high school cross-country runners, and 2 to determine whether leg-length inequality was associated with increased RRI in female and male high school cross-country runners.
Additionally, as the evidence for whether side of inequality is related to injury is mixed in adult running or military populations, 17 , 18 , 29 - 35 side of inequality was examined to determine if the shorter or longer leg limb was associated with side of running-related injury in female and male high school cross-country.
Further, as body mass index has been associated with RRI, 36 , 37 particularly lower leg RRI, 38 - 40 its influence on the relationship between leg-length inequality and RRI was assessed.
Four hundred twenty-one runners females, males , who competed on their teams during the high school cross-country season and were free of symptoms from any RRI at the time of the measurements, participated in the study. Parental consent and athlete assent was obtained for each subject prior to the baseline measurements.
During the course of the season, 28 runners 15 females, 13 males did not finish the season due to noninjury i. Thus, complete data for runners females, males were used in the final study analysis.
Data Collection Leg-Length. Just prior to the season, the main investigator went to each high school at a scheduled meeting time and place to measure their school's runners' leg-lengths.
The leg-length of both lower extremities for all runners were assessed with the subject in the supine position where each runner's absolute leg-length was measured with a cloth tape measure from the anterior superior iliac spine to the medial malleolus and recorded in centimeters. The intrarater intraclass correlation coefficient ICC 3,1 and standard error of measurement SEM value for the main investigator was 0.
At the time of the leg-length measurements, all subjects completed a questionnaire on baseline characteristics, which asked them to report their sex, age, height and weight. Prior to the season, the research team educated the runners to report any RRI symptoms to their coach.
Screening of the thoracic and lumbar spine and the lumbar-pelvic-iliac region Screening of the thoracic and lumbar spine and the lumbar-pelvic-iliac region is carried out with the patient standing, as it is the first part of the functional diagnosis. For the second part of the functional diagnosis, the patient lies down.
For the screening, the examining physician sits behind the patient who is standing undressed. This is an optimal position for inspection of the waist indentations, the trochanters and malleoli, the trapezium contours and scapula position and most especially for inspection of the pelvis because the eyes of the sitting examiner are at about the height of the patient's iliac crest.
In addition, this position of the examiner makes it possible for him to check and perhaps correct the way the mobility tests are carried out. The screening begins with additional file 1 the test of flexion, determined as finger-floor distance cm. This gives a first impression of the overall mobility of the thoracic and lumbar spine and the hips.
In the subsequent test for lateral bending, first continuous and discontinuous bending of the thoracic and lumbar spine are compared and then the distance of the fingertips to the lateral side of the knees registered for both sides.
With the sideways rotation test, preferably with the hands clasped behind the head and perhaps with fixation of the pelvis by the examiner, discrete scoliosis becomes more evident.

This is followed by percussion and tenderness tests for the spine, the iliolumbar ligament and the sacroiliac joint. This is followed by balancing on one leg, preferably on the so-called standing leg, with arms stretched out, palms of the hands upwards, head up to the ceiling and eyes closed Figure 3.
Figure 3 Balancing on one leg.
The last test, squatting with the heels on the floor and standing up from the squat, yields not only evidence of shortened muscles, e. Functional diagnostic examination of the thoracic and lumbar spine and the lumbar-pelvic-iliac region If the anamnesis is indicative of problems or the results of the screening are abnormal, a functional diagnostic examination should follow additional file 1.
In the first part the examiner is behind the standing patient. The flexion test of the spine is repeated and followed by an extension test. In the flexion test, the examiner places his thumbs on the spinae iliacae posteriores superiores, one on each side, and monitors especially cranial movement of these spinae with different degrees of flexion of the patient [ 12 ] Figure 4.
This can yield evidence of disorders or blockages in the sacroiliac joint. In addition, the mobility test of Ott for the thoracic spine and the technique of Schober for mobility of the lumbar spine should be carried out in anteflexion and retroflexion.

The second part of the functional diagnostic examination should be carried out if possible on a couch which can be approached by the examiner from all sides.J Korean Soc Phys Med ;3 2 — This book provides up-to-date coverage of fossil plants from Precambrian life to flowering plants, including fungi and algae.
Seoul: Ewha Women's University; Korean J Sports Sci ;18 3 — The test for hip joint extension can be omitted because it would require turning the patient into the prone position and because it contributes little towards the recognition of the capsular pattern of the hip joint [ 14 ].

Seoul: Koonja; Kim JS. In the reclination test the patient sits with the backs of his knees against the end of the couch. The fossil record shows that the different classes of plants emerged all of a sudden in the world, each with its own particular characteristics, and with no period of evolution behind it.
