ABSTRACT
In this study, it is aimed to examine the isokinetic force development of the sportsmen who had an anterior cruciate ligament operation. This research was executed on 19 person, 10 of them were sportsmen and 9 of them were not, who attended to the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center of Selcuk University between the years of 2004–2005 for this purpose, the isokinetic muscle forces of patients (820–130 type Biodex system isokinetic exercise measurement device) attended to the research was examined by determining their preliminary preparation. Statistical analysis of the obtaining parameters were performed on SPSS 15.0 (19) program. Diversities between control and informant group were determined by t-test and also the diversity of each group among weeks were stated by paired t-test. There was no difference on the body heights and body weights of the control and informant groups, but is was determined that the control group was older than the informant group. There was an increase in the PT (Peak torque) measurement of isokinetic force development (flexion and extansion) within the control and informant groups according to the weeks . During the statistical research on the extansion 60°/sec, 120°/sec and flexion 60°/sec, 120°/sec it was observed that the isokinetic measurement value of the informant group was higher than the control group. Although there was no difference between the flexion 60°/sec and 120°/sec PT isokinetic measurement values during the first four weeks, a difference was detected during the 8. and 12th weeks.Consequently according to the obtained findings, it was determined that after the ACL operation the isokinetic exercise and the treatment method is crucial for the sportsmen.
