Background: One of the most common knee ligament injuries is anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture which is associated with limited range of motion (ROM). Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the one preoperative kinesiotherapy cycle in relieving knee pain, increasing knee strength and range of motion in patients with ACL injury.
Materials and Methods: In this clinical trial study, 20 male male patients with ACL injury ranging in age from 17 to 29 years were divided into two intervention groups of kinesiotherapy (n = 11) and control (n = 9). The kinesiotherapy group underwent three sessions per week for 8 weeks. Pain variables, isokinetic strength of knee extensor muscles and knee joint ROM were measured by visual Analogue scale (VAS), goniometer and biodex dynamometer before and after the treatment, respectively. Data were analyzed using Student's t-test at the significant level of p <0.05.
Results: After a period of kinesiotherapy, the mean pain index, maximum quadriceps muscle torque and knee joint ROM improved in the kinesiotherapy group (P <0.05).
Conclusion: Using appropriate kinesiotherapy programs to improve the strength and knee joint ROM; can be a quick solution for athletes with ACL rupture before surgery.
Keywords: Kinesiotherapy, Knee strength, ACL injury, Knee range of motion, knee pain.
