Table 2 Average velocity, stride length, and peak kinematic values for patients with JFM in the first 60 % of stance during standardized gait (n = 10) and the land phase of the drop vertical jump (n = 8) before and after a neuromuscular training program

From: A pilot study of biomechanical assessment before and after an integrative training program for adolescents with juvenile fibromyalgia
