Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of participation in the accelerated rehabilitation with an anti-gravity treadmill program for 16 weeks on isokinetic myofunction and functional score of knee joint, ROM, and VAS score in meniscus repair patients. A total of 10 male adult patients who underwent meniscus repair by the same doctor were investigated in this study. Both extension and flexion peak torque at $60^{\circ}/sec$ and $180^{\circ}/sec$ significantly increased (p<0.001, p<0.01), while under muscle deficit, extension and flexion peak torque at $60^{\circ}/sec$ and extension peak torque at $180^{\circ}/sec$ significantly decreased (p<0.01, p<0.05). ROM in extension significantly decreased (p<0.05), whereas ROM in flexion significantly increased (p<0.01) in response to the program. VAS score significantly decreased (p<0.001) and lysholm scores significantly increased after completion of the program (p<0.001). These results suggest that 16 weeks of the anti-gravity treadmill accelerated rehabilitation program improves isokinetic muscle strength and functional score of knee joint, ROM, and VAS score in meniscus repair patients. Therefore, the anti-gravity treadmill accelerated rehabilitation program, which is a more scientific and effective method than conventional rehabilitation, leads to faster recovery of paly ground and normal daily activities.
