Diagnostic Validity of an Isokinetic Testing to Identify Partial Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries.

CONCLUSIONS: This method of isokinetic data analysis through fast Fourier transformation can be used to improve diagnostic accuracy of a difficult detection injury. Even present, a partial ACL injury can produce a stable knee during isokinetic testing and could be used to detect candidates for conservative treatment based on strengthening exercises, reducing surgery risks, and financial and social impact on patient's life.

Conclusion: Backward walking as a rehabilitation technique improved knee proprioception after ACL reconstruction. Increasing the angle of the treadmill during exercise improved the efficacy of rehabilitation. PMID: 31633440 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Low-quality evidence suggests there is no difference in delaying ACLR and very low-quality evidence suggests smokers have worse self-reported functional outcome after ACLR compared to non-smokers. High-quality RCTs are needed to confirm the relationship between the four modifiable factors studied and ACLR outcome. PMID: 31526063 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Feyzioğlu Ö, Öztürk Ö, Sirmen B, Muğrabi S Abstract CONTEXT: Although many researchers have investigated the functional outcomes of different accelerated rehabilitation programs after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), the functional results of the same accelerated rehabilitation program following ACLR applied for both elite athletes and non-athletes have not yet been investigated. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the effects of the same accelerated anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rehabilitation program on pain and functionality of elite athletes and...

In conclusion, our results suggest that the addition of BFR to exercise contributes to neuromuscular adaptations only when RT is performed with low-load. Furthermore, we found a significant association between the changes in [HHb] (i.e., metabolic stress) and increases in muscle CSA from T2 to T3 only for the LL-BFR, when muscle edema was attenuated. Introduction Resistance training- (RT) induced changes in muscle strength are partially due to increases in muscle cross-sectional area (CSA) (i.e., muscle hypertrophy) and changes in muscle architecture (e.g., increase in the pennation angle of muscle fibers) (Aagaard...

Purpose: Rates of return to pre-injury level and competitive level sport following ACLR surgery are low, with current research reporting return rates of 63% and 44% respectively. Post-surgical rehabilitation is commonly governed by an ACLR specific guideline/protocol and overseen by a physiotherapist. Current robust evidence suggests that the use of RTS criteria is important in aiding the decision-making process. Knowledge of physiotherapists ’ use of RTS criteria is limited. The aim of this study was to investigate the current practice of UK-based physiotherapists’ RTS decision-making following ACLR to determi...
