Abstract

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction allows most people to return to their previous level of function, but does not prevent the onset of knee osteoarthritis (OA). The development of OA in young people after ACL reconstruction may be caused by the initial injury, altered movement patterns, or changes in muscle control. This study will investigate the relationship between these factors. The findings will help to improve understanding of the causes of OA following ACL reconstruction.
