Search for the subtle signs!
Landing “hard” when jumping, running, or just walking can be due to a number of factors. It could be, and most often is, lack of strength, it could be lack of motor control, it could be as simple as the client doesn’t even realize they are doing it. It could even just be that the client is fatigued. Whichever way you slice it the “landing” eccentric phase of any movement is the one most likely to cause injury, if the client can’t control themselves under those circumstances then coach them to the point they can. Whether that’s making them stronger, teaching them how to “land soft” or just backing off the jumping that day, ignoring it could cause serious complications.
