We investigated whether preoperative perturbation training would help anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficient individuals who complain of knee instability ("non-copers") regain quadriceps strength and walk normally after ACL reconstruction. Nineteen non-copers with acute ACL injury were randomly assigned into a perturbation group (PERT) or a strengthening group (STR). The PERT group received specialized neuromuscular training and progressive quadriceps strength training, whereas the STR… CONTINUE READING
