This trial is evaluating whether Treatment will improve 6 primary outcomes and 17 secondary outcomes in patients with Gait. Measurement will happen over the course of Baseline (pre-intervention).
This trial requires 70 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. Treatment is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. Some patients will receive a placebo treatment. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Anterior cruciate ligament tears healed in the majority of patients. Postoperative MRI scans revealed no change in the healing process after the injury, which can be attributed to a tight, stable hamstring tendon attachment." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Treatment for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear varies considerably between clinicians and is heavily influenced by cost and the availability of facilities and treatment team members that can provide it. While no surgery was found to outperform conservative and non-operative treatment, knee arthroplasty is a viable option for patients with non-stable, moderate knee injuries. The best outcome after ACLT is achieved with surgical reconstruction and grafting, but the majority of patients can expect a functional knee with good quality of life." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Anterior cruciate ligament injury causes the biggest number of ACL tears in young athletes but these statistics reflect only those of high school athletes. The majority of ACL tears and injuries occur in high school-age athletes aged 15 to 29 years." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"ACL tear can occur at the time of a minor injury, and is more common in males. This injury rarely results in reconstruction or reconstruction in conjunction with an ACL reconstruction." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Findings from a recent study showed there was a difference in subjective and radiographic characteristics between athletes with ACL tears and those who did not. This difference is not large and may not be clinically relevant for the determination of injury. However, these results lend support to the idea of the ACL as a multi-tendinous knee structure rather than a single "lateral" structure." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The physical and MR imaging findings in people with an ACL tear are varied, and the clinical signs, which are nonspecific and vary greatly, are nonspecific also. While pain and weakness are common, signs of instability and signs of ligament damage are less common." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There is evidence that families may be more prone to having athletes develop anterior cruciate ligament injury if an injury was experienced in a close relative of the same sex." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"If we take into perspective the fact that an athlete may be more likely to have an ACL tear than they are to be injured by a car, then maybe the injury to the anterior cruciate ligament is the least serious ACL injury. Because most ACL tears heal in about three months and most patients return their previous level of sports in a few months, the ACL tear is not as critical a danger to the knees as the posterior cruciate ligament tear." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Data from a recent study does not provide any evidence for an association between ACL injury and sex or ethnicity when considering gender and ethnic group as independent factors. Data from a recent study, however, showed that the average age for ACL injury was 32 years. This suggests that sports and physical activity are more of a problem for girls than for boys." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There is not enough clinical evidence to show that treatment is more effective than placebo in ACL-injured patients. Further research is required to identify the best treatment for ACL-injured patients in a precise and robust fashion, and only when a cure for ACL injuries is achievable, then treatment effects will be more apparent. Until then, it is important to use current knowledge and data, in conjunction with the patient preferences and the cost of a specific treatment, to reach a good decision." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Patients with symptomatic ACL and non-surgical history should be considered for a trial of the experimental ACL reconstruction procedures. Patients who continue to have instability after surgical treatment may be best for autograft or allograft placement." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Since 2011, there is an increasing number of orthopedic surgeons who use arthroscopic techniques for the treatment of traumatic injuries of the shoulder and knee. This is because of the excellent short-term outcomes, the low costs, and because there is no open surgical surgery for shoulder and knee injuries at this time." - Anonymous Online Contributor
