and hearing a pop, resulting in progressive knee swelling and difficulty ambulating. The ACL is one of the major ligaments that provides stability to the knee joint by preventing anterior translation of the femur in the closed kinetic chain. 5 Therefore, most of the time, a ruptured ACL results in

ensured. Patients in the intervention and sham groups were blinded regarding the treatment. Both groups were told to receive an effective kinesio tape for the knee joint, only with a difference in the application area. The control group was not blinded. All measurements were accomplished at the university

second injury involves the previously uninjured knee. It appears that there is an urgent need to improve rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction. Athletes who have undergone an ACL reconstruction often demonstrate greater interlimb knee joint kinetic (ie, joint moments and power) asymmetry during

performed to determine the bar kinematics data and knee joint angle during the receiving phase of HPC. Bar displacement data were filtered with a fourth Butterworth filter with a cutoff frequency of 6 Hz. The displacement data were then converted to the vertical acceleration and velocity of the bar using

another reporting an undesirable decrease in knee joint flexion angle at landing. 4 Clinical Bottom Line The risk of noncontact ACL injury is thought to be elevated during landing, cutting, or jumping with increased knee valgus and/or increased knee extension angulation. 1 , 3 Based on this review
