Right side (control group) 9.8 ± 1.9 38.2 ± 3.6 4.9 ± 1.4 7.8 ± 3.9 7.0 ± 4.0 9.3 ± 4.5 2.7 ± 1.4 1.2 ± 0.06
Left side (control group) 10.1 ± 2 38.1 ± 4.6 5 ± 2.7 6.8 ± 5 6.4 ± 4.8 8.4 ± 4.9 2.2 ± 1.6 1.2 ± 0.05
  1. DFDS maximum foot dorsiflexion during stance, KFDS maximum knee flexion during stance, KAIC knee angle at initial contact, PTMS pelvic tilt at midstance, PTIC pelvic tilt at initial contact, PTHO pelvic tilt at heel off, PD pelvic drop, SL stride length.
  2. *KAIC greater on the injured side in the SG when compared to the right and left sides in the CG (p < 0.018).
  3. PD smaller on the uninjured side when compared to the injured side in the SG (p = 0.028) and to either side in the CG (p < 0.038).
