Effect of Footwear On Rotational Torques in Country Swing Dance, The
The repetitive dancing movements of spinning, sliding, and landing generate cumulative loads to the lower extremity and lead to high injury rates. Rotational loads to the knee can strain the anterior cruciate ligament and the medical and lateral collateral ligaments. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of different footwear on the peak rotational torque during a rotational movement in country swing dance. It was hypothesized that the leather bottom boots would result in the lowest peak rotational torque compared with the rubber bottom boots, barefoot, and running shoes. Eight ...
