2010.05.13 - Victoria Stahl - Fascia affects frontal plane movement

  • No differences observed in sagittal plane kinematics when cutting the crural fascia
    • Could this because of accuracy of kinematics?
  • Fasciotomy increases variability in movement in frontal plane
  • Questions
    • Are the changes absolute?  Relative magnitude would appear different, since forces are significantly different between frontal and sagittal planes
    • Internal/external rotation may account for variability, does this correspond to the greater frontal plane variability?
    • Cutting the interosseous ligament shows similar behavior, is it possible it is just a loss in limb "stiffness"?
    • How does muscle definition affect the role of fascia?
