Active Comparator: Grupo A (Kinesio Taping)
Will be held the application of Kinesio Taping (Tex Gold) in the region of the rectus femoris dominant lower limb by a physical therapist trained in the technique (KT1 KT2 and) and with experience in this type of application to be designed without knowing in which group fits this patient. In the sequence, the athlete will be oriented to remain at rest for 30 min to get a better grip on the tape and one of the first tests and rest, only after this period will conduct a new evaluation of jump tests (single leg Hop test and Triple Hop Test) and, finally, a new test of strength in the isokinetic dinamomêtro in conjunction with the electromyographic assessment.
Procedure: Kinesio Taping
Application of Kinesio (Kinesio Tex Gold ®) of black color. The tape will be applied from proximal to distal, leaving the anterosuperior iliac spine Bottom, passing over the Rectus Femoris and ending in the region of the anterior tibia tuberosity with a voltage of 25 %.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo Taping
The volunteer will receive a Placebo application tape, being in this case the physical therapist will apply a strip of Kinesio Taping perpendicular to the muscle fibers of the rectus femoris of the dominant member of the individual.
Device: Kinesio Taping placebo
The volunteer who is allocated at random in the placebo group will receive an application of Kinesio transverse way the rectus femoris muscle, in order to verify a possible placebo effect of application of tape.
- Hop Test [ Time Frame: 1 year ]The volunteer must position themselves in foot with unipodal support in the dominant lower limb behind a line that will be demarcated on the ground and jump as far as possible, without support in the contralateral limb or imbalance. The distance will be measured with a tape measure, from the starting point (line demarcated on the ground) until the most proximal point of the heel of the foot fell on the floor.
- Surface electromyography [ Time Frame: 1 year ]During isokinetic evaluation will also be carried out a study of the electrical activity of the rectus femoris muscle. For the capture of the electrical signal of that muscle will be used the acquisition system with 8 channels (EMG System of Brazil Ltda ®), composed of active electrodes with bipolar won 20 times amplification, analog filter pass band of 20 to 500 Hz and common mode rejection of 120 dB, and one of the channels will be enabled to use the force transducer (EMG System of Brazil Ltda ®). EMG signals are sampled with 2000 Hz frequency, scanned for AD conversion plate (analog-digital) with 16 bits of resolution.
- Isokinetic evaluation of knee Extensors [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Immediately after heating and evaluation of jumps, the volunteers will perform the test of maximum voluntary contraction (CVM). Being they, positioned sitting on the seat of the isokinetic dynamometer (4, Biodex) the dominant limb is positioned to 60° of knee flexion (with 0° corresponds to total knee extension) and attached to the seat by means of a dynamometer belt. The non-dominant lower limb will also be positioned with 100° of flexion of hip and will also be attached to the seat with a belt. The volunteers will also be attached to the seat of the dynamometer through two belts across his torso. During the tests the volunteers will be instructed to place his arms across the trunk and the dynamometer axis is positioned parallel to the center of the knee joint. The CVM test will consist in the execution of three isometric contractions of knee extensors of the non-dominant lower limb with duration of 5 seconds, the highest torque value obtained in the three contractions (peak torque).
