“When will I be able to play again?” Following ACL reconstruction surgery, that’s a question orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists invariably hear—often repeatedly—from their athletically inclined patients.
The multiple surgical, rehabilitative, and patient-centered factors that go into answering this difficult question are the subject of this free webinar, hosted jointly by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) and the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy (JOSPT).
This webinar will focus on the following two articles, one from each journal:
• Operative Treatment of Primary ACL Rupture in Adults (JBJS 2014; 96:685-94)
• Return to Preinjury Sports Participation Following ACL Reconstruction: Contributions of Demographic, Knee Impairment, and Self-report Measures (JOSPT 2012; 42:893-901)
After the articles’ primary authors present their data, two additional return-to-sports experts will add their perspectives to this body of research. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters.
