. The player was placed on a program that combined gelatin ingestion and stress relaxation loading as part of a rehabilitation protocol. Of note, even with an extensive playing and training schedule, the protocol significantly decreased MRI reactivity, increased the thickness of the midsubstance of the

There is an increasing emphasis on the use of closed kinetic chain exercises in the testing and rehabilitation of many patients with various pathologies. Because of this increased emphasis, there is a need for critical thinking in rehabilitation. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the application of critical thinking in the following areas: examination, specific rehabilitation protocols, the need for outcome research, and the rationale and need for the integration of open and closed kinetic chain exercises and their application to testing and rehabilitation.

repair and conservative treatment are viable options for certain athletes. A surgical repair of the ligament will require approximately 6 months of rehabilitation before returning to competition. 5 If reconstructive surgery is necessary, rehabilitation will last at least 12 to 18 months. 1 , 4 , 6 – 8

Context The evaluation of change in patient status throughout and after the cessation of orthopedic rehabilitation is a vital component of health care and is often captured from the patient’s perspective by patient-based outcomes. Patient-based outcomes are used to assess the effect of the health

Management of the overhead athlete presenting with anterior instability requires an identification of factors influencing successful therapeutic intervention strategies. The importance of differentiating a diagnosis, of knowing something of the demands of the sport, and of addressing pertinent anatomical and biomechanical considerations of the throwing shoulder prior to implementing rehabilitation programs must be considered. An appreciation of the complexities of the throwing shoulder serves as a basis for the selection of rehabilitation activities aimed at returning the athlete to pretrauma levels of overarm proficiency. The challenge of regaining normal shoulder joint osteokinematics and neuromuscular function at a competitive status is described in terms of the proper selection and sequencing of rehabilitation exercises for the initiation and progression of range of motion, muscle strength, muscle reducation, and sport-specific functional activities. Time frames for progressing the various stages of rehabilitation, indications for exercise selection based on electromyographic studies, and attention to detail with regard to exercise execution are emphasized.

The single-leg squat task is used as a rehabilitative exercise 1 , 2 or as a screening tool 3 , 4 for the functional movement of the lower limb. The presence of pathology influences the way in which the single-leg squat is performed. On performing the single-leg squat, individuals with
