Abstract

Determinants of frontal plane knee deviations is essential in football players because signsof osteoarthritis increases with age than the random population of same age .Kicking and cutting maneuver in football causes external loading of knee joint that shows varus-valgus stresses and causes chances of losing stability medially and laterally. 136 male football players with age group between 15-30 years participated in the study.The inclusion criteria were competitive football players playing since one year .Measurement of Intercondylar,intermalleolartibiofemoral angle and medial and lateral hamstring strength was done. Result showed correlation between number of years of playing football and the lateral hamstring strength of the dominant leg, as well as medial hamstring strength of the non-dominant leg but there was no correlations found between the tibio-femoral angle, the medial- lateral hamstring strength ratios of dominant or the non-dominant leg of the football players .
