Session Level: Advanced

This session focuses on neurophysiological changes that occur following ACL reconstruction. Leading clinician scientists and researchers discuss key elements of a comprehensive treatment approach from identification of neurophysiological changes in the research laboratory to application of addressing strength and motor control impairments in a real-world clinical practice environment. This session concludes with audience questions and discussions with platform presenters and panel members.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Apply current research to ACL rehabilitation clinical cases.

2. Recognize clinical signs of neurophysiological changes following ACL reconstruction

3. Observe a clinical decision-making model to inform treatment selection to address impairments in sensorimotor control, muscle strength, and athletic performance following ACL reconstruction.
