PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate active knee flexion range of motion and hamstring strength following hamstring anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. TYPE OF STUDY Case control study, consecutive sample. METHODS Seventy-four consecutive patients who had undergone hamstring ACL reconstruction underwent isokinetic muscle strength testing at 2 years post surgery. Measurements of the maximum standing active knee flexion angle with the hip extended were also taken… CONTINUE READING
