Altered movement patterns in individuals with ACL rupture

This study assessed for altered movement patterns during single and double leg squat in subjects with ACL tear

The underlying mechanisms of altered movement patterns in individuals with ACL injury are not fully understood. The current study assessed single and double leg squat movement patterns using surface EMG on 6 muscles of the lower limb as well as video analysis. The authors found reduced activiy in at least 3 of the 6 muscles during both squats and, interestingly, the differences were greater during the double leg squat.
