Proprioception of the knee was measured in 20 patients with reconstructed anterior cruciate ligaments and in 19 age-matched controls. The mean time from surgery was 2 years. Three tests of proprioception were used: (a) threshold to detection of passive motion from 20 and 40 degrees toward flexion and extension, (b) active reproduction of a 30 degrees passive angle change, and (c) visual reproduction of a 30 degrees passive angle change. The aim was a complete, bilateral, proprioceptive… CONTINUE READING
