Athletes who sustain an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury often opt for an ACL reconstruction (ACLR) with the goal and expectation to return to sports at the preinjury level. The proportion of athletes who successfully return to preinjury-level sport is low and disappointing, whereas the rate of second ACL injury in athletes under the age of...
Article
Background: The goal of a rehabilitation programme after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is to manage a patient's goals and expectations (i.e., returning to physical activities and sports) while minimizing the risk of new injury, particularly a new ACL injury. Although general rehabilitation programmes have been proposed, some fact...

Contextual factors influence how the athlete, coach, and clinicians view an injury. The main construct to define a sports injury by athletes is the consequence on sports performance. This in turn may also affect the role and responsibilities each have in the continuum of return to play (RTP). As a coach, it is recommended to have an open communicat...

Article
Full-text available
Almost all athletes who have suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury expect a full return to sports at the same pre-injury level after ACL reconstruction (ACLR). Detailed patient information on the reasonable outcomes of the surgery may be essential to improve patient satisfaction. Pre-operative rehabilitation before ACLR should be cons...

Athletes who have sustained an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury often opt for an ACL reconstruction (ACLR) with the goal and expectation to resume sports. Unfortunately, the proportion of athletes successfully returning to sport is relatively low, while the rate of second ACL injury has been reported to exceed 20% after clearance to return t...

Study Design Controlled laboratory study; prospective. Background Postural stability deficits during single-leg stance have been reported in persons with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, ACL reconstruction, and chronic ankle instability. It remains unclear whether impaired postural stability is a consequence or cause of these injuries. Obje...
Article
Background: Whilst many studies measure large numbers of biomechanical parameters and associate these to anterior cruciate ligament injury risk, they cannot be considered as anterior cruciate ligament injury risk factors without evidence from prospective studies. A review was conducted to systematically assess the in vivo biomechanical literature...

Recent developments in wireless capture of muscle activity signals have improved the freedom of motion and the ease of use. Nevertheless, no study has examined the quality of wireless electromyographic technology during water activities. In this study the performance of a surface electromyography (SEMG) wireless system on dry land and in water was...
Article
Deficits in neuromuscular control are believed to increase re-injury risk after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Previous studies mainly focused on muscles at the operated knee, less on muscles around other joints of the operated and non-operated leg. To evaluate lower extremity muscle onset times during the transition from double-...
Article
Despite recent advances in rehabilitation and secondary prevention strategies after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), re-injury rates remain high and long-term outcomes are often disappointing. Deficits in postural stability are shown to be important. To evaluate postural stability during the transition from double-leg stance to sin...
Article
Full-text available
Acute and overuse knee injuries are common in sports involving jump-landing movements, especially in female athletes. More erect sagittal plane movement patterns are believed to increase injury risk. Whilst three-dimensional (3D) measurements are considered to be the gold standard, they are complex and two-dimensional (2D) video analysis may be a v...
Article
Full-text available
A high knee abduction moment (KAM) and an erect movement pattern during landing have been suggested as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury risk factors. Previous research focused mainly on determination of parameters with a predictive value for ACL injuries. However, few studies have investigated neuromuscular activity patterns. To investigate...

Full-text available
Background: The determination of anatomical reference frames in the rearfoot during three-dimensional multisegment foot modeling has been hindered by a variety of factors. One of these factors is related to the difficulty in palpating, or the absence of, anatomical landmarks. A novel device (the Calcaneal Marker Device) aimed at standardizing mark...
