OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of quadriceps strength and joint stability on gait patterns after anterior cruciate ligament injury and reconstruction. DESIGN Cross-sectional comparative study in which four groups underwent motion analysis with surface electromyography. BACKGROUND Individuals following anterior cruciate ligament rupture often demonstrate reduced knee angles and moments during the early stance phase of gait. Alterations in gait can neither be ascribed to instability nor to… CONTINUE READING
