The effects of joint hypermobility syndrome on the kinematics and kinetics of the vertical jump test (2020)
Journal Article
Alsiri, N., Cramp, M., Barnett, S., & Palmer, S. (2020). The effects of joint hypermobility syndrome on the kinematics and kinetics of the vertical jump test. Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology, 55, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jelekin.2020.102483

Purpose: Biomechanical impairments are not apparent during walking in people with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS). This research explored biomechanical alterations during a higher intensity task, vertical jumping. Materials and methods: This cross...

Gait biomechanics in joint hypermobility syndrome: A spatiotemporal, kinematic and kinetic analysis (2020)
Journal Article
Alsiri, N., Cramp, M., Barnett, S., & Palmer, S. (2020). Gait biomechanics in joint hypermobility syndrome: A spatiotemporal, kinematic and kinetic analysis. Musculoskeletal Care, 18(3), 301-314. https://doi.org/10.1002/msc.1461

Introduction Joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS) symptoms of widespread joint hypermobility and pain, muscle weakness and reduced muscle‐tendon stiffness suggest that there may be an impact on gait parameters. Identification of gait abnormalities may... Read More about Gait biomechanics in joint hypermobility syndrome: A spatiotemporal, kinematic and kinetic analysis.

Effects of postural taping on pain, function and quality of life following osteoporotic vertebral fractures—A feasibility trial (2018)
Journal Article
Palmer, S., Barnett, S., Cramp, M., Berry, A., Thomas, A., & Clark, E. M. (2018). Effects of postural taping on pain, function and quality of life following osteoporotic vertebral fractures—A feasibility trial. Musculoskeletal Care, 16(3), 345-352. https://doi.org/10.1002/msc.1350

Copyright © 2018 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Objective: Osteoporotic vertebral fractures (OVFs) are common and present a significant burden to patients and healthcare services. Poor posture can increase vertebral pressure, pain and the risk of further...
