BACKGROUND Despite rehabilitation training, deficiency in knee joint position sense, muscular performance, postural control, and functional ability is common after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Whole-body vibration therapy (WBVT), which is initiated from 3 months postoperatively, has proven benefits. However, the effect of earlier WBVT is unknown. PURPOSE To investigate the effect of early WBVT on neuromuscular control after ACLR. STUDY DESIGN Randomized controlled trial… CONTINUE READING
