Abstract:
The present study was undertaken to determine the anthropometric variables and lower extremity anatomical alignments, those which have impact on the magnitude of navicular drop. 81 university level female judo players of age group 18-25 years were selected purposively from different universities of northern India for the study. Eleven selected parameters such as height, weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), right total leg length, right lower leg length, right tibiofemoral angle, right femoral anteversion, right Q-angle, right genu recurvatum, right tibial torsion, and right navicular drop were measured on each player following standard techniques. Significant positive correlation of right ND was seen with weight, BMI, right total leg length, right Q-angle, right genu recurvatum and right tibial torsion. Results concluded that weight, BMI, total leg length, Q-angle, genu recurvatum and tibial torsion have significant impact on the magnitude of static ND.
