Returning to sport after ACL injury: functional testing, biomechanics and surgical considerations

Updated terms and Conditions - Covid-19 Vaccinations:
For your safety and that of our community, all APA staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. It is also a requirement that all presenters, tutors, convenors and registrants (or the equivalent) are fully vaccinated with a TGA approved COVID-19 vaccine in order to attend a face to face event by 1 November 2021 for NSW, VIC, TAS events and 1 December 2021 for WA, SA, QLD, ACT, NT events. Proof of double vaccination or medical exemption, will be required when checking in to the event.

In this lecture we will discuss returning to sport following an ACL injury from the perspective of an orthopaedic surgeon and a physiotherapist. Dr Ross Radic is a prominent orthopaedic surgeon in Western Australia with a special interest in ACL and meniscal injuries. Ross will be discussing surgical consideration with regards to graft selection, healing timeframes and associated injuries.

Nic Blackah is a physiotherapist with a background in sports biomechanics and motion analysis. Nic will discuss the current evidence around functional testing and return to sport assessment. This will include practical considerations regarding the limb symmetry index, strength assessments and the use of various hopping and jumping assessments. Nic will also be discussing the use of force plates, dynamometry and motion analysis in the assessment of lower limb function. Ross and Nic are currently involved in several research projects looking at return to sport markers following ACL injury through Curtin University.

This lecture is held at APA WA office.
