Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is a condition in which damage occurs to subchondral bone with possible secondary damage to the overlying articular cartilage. Patients with stable OCD of the knee often report an aching feeling or activity-related pain

chance of injury will always remain, especially if collisions are an integral part of the sport. For this reason, it is crucial to minimize the impact of injury by optimizing injury rehabilitation. A proper rehabilitation process should allow players to return to sport safely within a minimal time span

The use of lower-body positive-pressure (LBPP) or body-weight-supported (BWS) exercise has become increasingly popular in rehabilitation and injury prevention settings. 1 – 4 A key benefit of applying LBPP is that cardiovascular fitness and lower limb function can be maintained, while the

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

following relatively simple knee surgical procedures (ie, arthroscopic meniscectomy). Other prospective studies have further concluded that no long-term clinical or functional outcome differences were found in patients who underwent a generally unsupervised rehabilitation protocol compared to those who

Global Positioning System (GPS) technology offer potential to quantify mechanical loading during functional rehabilitative tasks. Recently, mediolateral loading imbalances were highlighted in a case study of ankle sprain injury in elite male soccer. 11 However, to enhance the clinical application of GPS
