Purpose Altered quadriceps muscle activity can contribute to reduced ability of the muscle to quickly generate force and appropriately attenuate landing forces, exacerbating poor landing and movement strategies commonly seen after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). The purpose was to evaluate if electromyographic (EMG) activity and knee biomechanics during a single-limb forward hop task are influenced by a history of ACLR.

Abstract Background Underlying neural factors contribute to poor outcomes following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Neurophysiological adaptations have been identified in corticospinal tract excitability, however limited evidence exists on neurostructural changes that may influence motor recovery in ACLR patients. Objective To 1) quantify hemispheric differences in structural properties of the corticospinal tract in patients with a history of ACLR, and 2) assess the relationshi...

Abstract Objectives Neural alterations after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) may initiate a maladaptive neurocognitive response (learned helplessness [LH]). Understanding the interrelationships between neural inhibition, quadriceps function and psychological responses can provide clinicians areas to target during recovery. The purpose was to longitudinally evaluate neural excitability, strength and self-reported LH after ACL injury and to explore the relationship between these m...

Abstract Background Evaluating average performance on functional hop tasks can potentially overestimate physical function, as it masks variability present within individual trials and may lead to clinician oversight regarding the overall movement quality. The purpose was to evaluate the trial-by-trial agreement between hop-distance symmetry and knee biomechanics (knee flexion angle, knee extension moment) to reveal the full extent of agreement between these measures. Methods Sixteen individuals ...

Quadriceps muscle dysfunction is common following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Data considering the diversity of neural changes, in-concert with morphological adaptations of the quadriceps muscle, are lacking. We investigated bilateral differences in neural and morphological characteristics of the quadriceps muscle in ACLR participants (n = 11, month post-surgery: 69.4 ± 22.4) compared to controls matched by sex, age, height, weight, limb dominance, and activity level. Spina...

Purpose To investigate the effects of graft source, time since surgery, age, and sex on unilateral and symmetry-based measures of knee extension strength among individuals with ACL reconstruction (ACLR).
