  • Comparable results seen with high- vs low-intensity plyometric exercise after ACL reconstruction

    Results from this randomized controlled trial showed both low- and high-intensity plyometric exercise for rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction positively affected knee function, knee impairments and psychological status among patients after 8 weeks of intervention. Researchers randomly assigned 24 patients who underwent ACL reconstruction to 8 weeks of either low- or high-intensity plyometric exercise, and the […]
