The overall goal of this project is to reduce risk of second anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in vulnerable populations (active athletes between 14 = 24 years old) through the identification of relative injury risk groups based on subject-specific movement patterns prior to second injury, as well as through the determination of effect for differential rehabilitation protocols following initial ACL reconstruction and prior to return to sport. As nearly one-third of athletes who have a primary ACL injury and return to sport will experience a secondary injury, results from the proposed work will allow us to prospectively identify high risk patients who are the most appropriate recipients of enhanced treatment, including targeted training, which may reduce the risk of second ACL injury. Secondary ACL injury has the potential to end athletic careers, promote the development of osteoarthritis, and have debilitating effects on quality of life. Hence, the information gathered in this investigation will offer ACL injured athletes the optimal potential to reduce or potentially prevent these negative health effects before they are initiated.
