Active Voice: Gait Biomechanics in ACL Reconstructed Knees at Different Time Frames Post-Surgery

from By John Goetschius, Ph.D., A.T., ATC, and Joseph M. Hart, Ph.D., ATC, FACSM, FNATA

Viewpoints presented in SMB commentaries reflect opinions of the authors and do not necessarily represent positions or policies of ACSM.

John Goetschius, Ph.D., A.T., ATC, is an assistant professor of exercise science & athletic training at Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia under the advisement of Dr. Joseph M. Hart. His research interests include improving clinical outcomes for patients with a history of lower-extremity joint injury through the study of post-traumatic muscle dysfunction and clinical interventions. He is a licensed athletic trainer and an ACSM member.

Joseph M. Hart, Ph.D., ATC, FACSM, FNATA, is an associate professor of kinesiology in the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he serves as co-director of the Exercise & Sport Injury Laboratory. He also serves in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery as the director of clinical research. Dr. Hart’s research interests relate to outcomes of ACL reconstruction, including rehabilitation interventions, assessment of muscle strength and biomechanics, return to physical activity and post-traumatic osteoarthritis.

This commentary presents Dr. Goetschius’ and Dr. Hart’s views on the topic of a research article that they had published with other colleagues. Their paper appears in the November 2018 issue of
Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® (MSSE). more
