High isokinetic-strength, functional testing score may lead to higher knee strength, activity level

High isokinetic-strength, functional testing score may lead to higher knee strength, activity level
April 24, 2015

LOS ANGELES — Patients who had an excellent performance on isokinetic-strength and functional testing 6 months after ACL reconstruction exhibited superior knee strength and higher activity levels at mid-term follow-up, according to a presenter here.

“Functional and isokinetic testing at 6 months was predictive of knee function, activity level and rate of contralateral ACL injury,” Matthew Prince, DO, said at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting. “An early return to sport may result in higher risk for contralateral ACL injury.”
