Heightened flexor withdrawal responses following ACL rupture are enhanced by passive tibial translation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Hyperexcitability of nociceptive pathways has been demonstrated with several musculoskeletal conditions but not anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. The purpose was to investigate flexor withdrawal reflex (FWR) excitability following ACL rupture and determine if painless stretch of knee joint structures enhanced reflexive responses.
