Abstract

This prospective cohort study was performed to analyze the use of the functional overhead squat (OS) in predicting athletic injury in division II basketball players. A total of 26 basketball players participated in the study and were examined while preforming a functional OS. Using the video analysis software Spark Motion by Spark Motion LLC, an anterior and lateral view of the squat was analyzed. A Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve was done comparing lower extremity injury with range of motion of the ankle, knee and hip individually. The results indicated that the area under the curve for the ankle was 0.559, 0.448 the knee, and 0.451 for the hip. This study showed that the OS was not effective in predicting athletic injury for basketball players, and for male and female players individually. Analyzing the range of motion (ROM) of the OS alone is not effective in predicting injury, thus, the studies hypothesis is rejected.
