Abstract

There are over 250,000 Anterior Cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries each year in the United States in which approximately 100,000 receive subsequent ACL reconstructions, making it one of the most frequent musculoskeletal injuries in the United States (Van Wyngaarden et al., 2020). Functional hop testing and patient reported outcome measures that measure kinesiophobia or fear of movement, are frequently used to assess return to sport readiness (Van Wyngaarden et al., 2020). The aim of this study was to determine if there is a relationship between kinesiophobia and hop testing in individuals with unilateral ACL reconstruction. We intended to recruit thirty participants with unilateral ACL reconstruction to participate in this study. The participants were assessed with clinical measurements including several patient-reported outcome measures including the Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia and the ACL-return to sport, followed by a series of three hop tests. We hypothesized that ACL reconstructed individuals with greater kinesiophobia would have worse functional hop testing.
