dc.description.abstractChapter one of this thesis offered a general insight on the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and the outcome measures of ACL rehabilitation while chapter two was a systematic review on the effects of “accelerated rehabilitation” after ACL reconstruction surgery. The review concluded that 5 out of 10 randomised control trial studies had demonstrated moderate relative effect sizes in terms of improved knee laxity, neuromuscular performance, range of motion and some patient-reported outcome measures following accelerated rehabilitation for patients with ACL reconstruction. Chapter three was a systematic review in which the genetic influence on responsiveness to strength conditioning and the outcomes of knee after ACL reconstruction were investigated. The findings revealed that intra-genotypic responses to strength conditioning were heterogeneous and that duration, intensity and frequency of strength conditioning were factors that contributed to the differential responses of genotypes in regulating gains in strength.
