The study showed, to varying degrees, the constraints were associated with greater knee abduction moment, which can increase the possibility of anterior cruciate ligament injury, according to lead author Ajit Chaudhari, PhD, FACSM, an associate professor of physical therapy, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and orthopedics at The Ohio State University in Columbus.,Although the study did not compare kinematics or kinetics during offensive and defensive actions, Monfort said the effects of ball handling could have been offset by other factors that can also affect biomechanics.,In basketball, defensive moves tend to occur in response to movements by an offensive player that are hard for the defender to anticipate; this may play a greater role in terms of injury risk than any potential effects of ball handling, Monfort noted.,Carrying a piece of sports equipment can compound the effects of unanticipated movements and other variables that can increase injury risk, experts said.,Monfort was the lead author of a 2017 study presented in June at the annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine9 investigating how visual memory (as determined using the Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Test [ImPACT] battery) influenced the effect of soccer-ball dribbling on biomechanics in male athletes.
