ACLR patients exhibit hop test deficits between limbs and vs matched controls

By Jordana Bieze Foster After anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), hop test scores differ not only between limbs but also when scores for either limb are compared with normative data from healthy athletes, according to research from the Netherlands that could have return-to-sports implications. In 52 patients (14 women) a mean of seven months after ACLR, investigators from the University of Groningen assessed performance for each limb on three hop tests: single-leg hop for distance (SLH), triple-leg hop for distance (TLH), and side hop (SH).
