musculoskeletal injury is exponentially higher after a primary injury, highlighting the need for functional testing to determine injury recovery and return to play readiness to mitigate the high reinjury risk. 4 Functional testing comes in numerous forms. Lower-extremity functional testing has focused on agility

potential cause of these performance deficits. Witchalls et al 4 found deficits in explosive power, agility, and proprioception in those with laxity of the ankle joint. Therefore, explosiveness and agility deficits may be observed due to strength impairments. Our results may affect clinical treatment by

At 15 days, he was completely pain free, returned to unrestricted soccer, and successfully completed the remaining 5 weeks of the season. In this case, surgical intervention provided the patient with the chance to
