Laval University Rouge et or Post ACL Surgery Program Effectiveness

2019-10-28 13:56:51 | BioPortfolio


The main objective is to compare the effectiveness of two readaptation programs post anterior cruciate ligament surgery. Laval University Rouge et or program is to be compared with the intervention guide from the CHU. Amateur athletes are recruited 3 months post ACL surgery. The level of confidence, symptoms, functional recovery level and muscle strength are assessed and compared between the two groups at 3, 4, 5, 6 and 9-month post surgery.


It is experimental research with pre-post repeated measure with a control group. The subjects are randomised either in the intervention group (Gr PRORO-UL) or the control group (Gr CHU-CP). The assessor is blinded to the randomisation. Both groups receive their program at the first assessment at three months post-ACL-surgery. They are strongly encouraged to continue their follow-up in physiotherapy to ensure the program is suitable to their individual progression. The participants are assessed again at 4, 5, 6 and 9 months post surgery to measure their progression. A weekly journal sent by e-mail is to be filled to ensure the subjects train according to their program attribution. It is a randomised control trial with a blinded assessor.
