Samenvatting

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of kinematic chain manipulative therapy on the frontal plane knee movement in cycling.

Methods: in this study 13 amateur cyclists aged between 25 and 65 years old participated and underwent kinematic chain manipulative therapy executed by a professional orthopaedic manual therapist. Before and after the intervention the frontal plane knee movement was measured in a cycling trail using a 3D motion analyse system.

Results: Eight out of thirteen subjects (62%) showed a decreased- and three subjects showed an increased frontal plane knee movement. The mean difference before and after manipulative therapy was a decrease of 2 mm ± 2,6 (mean ± SD). A t-test revealed a statistically significant difference between the frontal plane movement before- and after kinematic chain manipulative therapy (P=0,041).

Conclusion: The study shows a decreased trend in frontal plane knee movement in cyclists but further research with a bigger research group will be needed before drawing any firm conclusions.
