Abstract

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is common. Insufficient strength and functional symmetry may contribute to re-injury after ACLR, and is commonly evaluated via hop tests and isokinetic dynamometry. More recently, the Back in Action (BIA) protocol was developed to assist the return to sport (RTS) decision making process after ACLR. This study sought to compare limb symmetry indices (LSIs) and RTS pass rates, in commonly employed hop tests and isokinetic dynamometry to components of the BIA battery in ACLR patients.
