Are vertical drop jumping and sidestep cutting tasks reliable to measure risky knee motions? Implications to ACL injury preventions

Research output: Journal PublicationsPolicy or Profession paperProfession

Abstract

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries have received
growing attention in past decades because of the complicated
surgical treatment, lengthy rehabilitation and long-term
musculoskeletal consequences. The ACL injury prevention
program is effective to reduce half of the injury cases, and
there is no risk associated with the training. Therefore, the
prevention program can be offered to all players. A movement
screening task is still needed to identify players with increased
risk for ACL injury, so high risk players can be given special
attention and exposure to tailor-made injury prevention training. We need to know, however, if the movement screening
task is reliable or not.
