Functional performance post ACL reconstruction

...does it predict return to play at 12 and 24 months?

Optimizing return to sport post ACL reconstruction continues to be a topic in need of further advancement. Despite advances in rehabilitation, the ability to return to pre-injury status remains a question for many and risk of re-injury remains high. The following study has found the use of return to play criteria at 6 months predictive of return to pre-injury level at both 12 and 24 months.

The authors found the return to previous level of function at 12 and 24 months was higher for those who had passed the return to play criteria than those who did not. Furthermore, the authors recommend the use of functional limb symmetry tests be used to guide clinical decisions regarding return to sport considerations.
