Physiotherapy trial on the horizon for patients with ACL reconstruction

Dr Neil Artz, Director of Artz Physiotherapy Ltd will be a member of a research team at North Bristol NHS Trust comparing accelerated versus non-accelerated rehabilitation following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Neil and members of The Bristol Knee Group surgeons working at Southmead hospital will perform a pilot randomised control trial comparing two separate knee rehabilitation protocols. The research team will measure knee muscle function and knee joint stability at 9 and 14-months after surgery. It is estimated that the trial will begin in March 2014.
