Abstract

Soldiers routinely conduct load-carriage and associated physical training that elicits high physical demands and are believed to be the primary cause of musculoskeletal injury. Appropriately designed physical training can help mitigate injury risks. This study aimed to assess changes in lower-limb joint biomechanics during load-carriage in response to a 10- week evidence-based training program. After training, lower- limb joint neuromuscular adaptive responses were demonstrated over the duration of a 5 km load-carriage task.
