About

Determine the effecttiveness of a cross-education strength training protocol in a group of subjects with an anterior cruciate ligament surgery.

Full description

The cross-education (CE) phenomenon has been studied in recent years as a form of gain muscle strength not only in healthy subjects but also in acute injuries such as musculoskeletal disorders and immovilitations. Unilateral training of the not injured limb has been suggested as an option to produce cross-edutation in terms of strength and skills. In addition, functional magnetic resonance imaging have been postulated as a promising tool to study the mechanisms of transfer. In the context of our study, arthrogenic muscle inhibition (AMI) of knee extensors is a common consequence after ACL repair in which a CE strength training can lead to reduce quadriceps atrophy and its implications in long terms achievements. Thus, an unilateral strength protocol of the uninjuried limb, according to the last Delphi Consensus, will be run for 8 weeks to check the possible benefits of the transfer in a sample of ACL repair.
