AJSM Webinar Series - April 2020 Recording
The American Journal of Sports Medicine is proud to announce the next installment in our journal webinar series.* This webinar features the article “How Much Time Is Needed Between Serial ‘Return to Play’ Assessments to Achieve Clinically Important Strength Gains in Patients Recovering From Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction?” Moderator Kate E. Webster, PhD, and authors Joe M. Hart, PhD, ATC, and Stephan G. Bodkin, MEd, ATC, are joined by Julian A. Feller, FRACS, to discuss return to play after ACL reconstruction. Decisions for return to play are complicated, with pass rates for return-to-play evaluations low after ACL reconstruction. How long after surgery should patients be tested to see clinically meaningful improvements? Can such testing inform us of whether our athletes are capable to return to play? Can they also be used to assess safety? Can we apply primary prevention knowledge to secondary prevention?

*This activity has been approved for 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.™

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
1. Explain theoretical underpinnings for return to sport testing in the context of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction
2. Describe that outcomes change according to different timepoints after ACL reconstruction surgery
3. Identify recommended timepoints between strength assessments
4. Describe some of the benefits and limitations of return to sport testing
