SAMPLE QUIZ Knee 102 Rehabilitaton - No Certificate Issued
Questions: 5
This is only a SAMPLE. No certificate will be issued for this course.
  • 1. Rehabilitation of anterior cruciate ligament injuries has advanced greatly in recent years. Restoration of neuromuscular control is an important aspect of contemporary management, incorporating which of the following approaches/considerations?
  • a) Once pain and swelling are under control and quadriceps control is re-established, proprioceptive training can begin (normally 2 weeks post-surgery)
  • b) Include single-leg balance exercises – progressing from stable to unstable surfaces, then adding concomitant therapist perturbation or extremity movements
  • c) Cone step-over drills, lateral lunges and careful progression to plyometric training
  • d) All of the above are reasonable approaches/considerations for improving neuromuscular control
  • 2. Earl & Hoch (2011) evaluated the effects of a proximal stability rehab program in women with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). One the most important results of their rehabilitation program was:
  • a) The reduction of knee abduction moment, which has been prospectively linked to PFPS
  • b) A decrease in lateral core endurance, which means the knee is better able to stabilize itself during functional movements
  • c) Reduction of the recurrence rate of PFPS symptoms at long-term follow-up
  • d) None of the above
  • 3. Data from the Multicenter Osteoarthritis Study (MOST) indicates:
  • a) Quadriceps strength is correlated with reduced risk of incident knee OA as well as radiographic changes
  • b) Quadriceps strength is correlated with reduced risk of incident knee OA, but not radiographic changes in the knee
  • c) Decreased proprioception is directly associated with the incidence of knee OA
  • d) Neither quadriceps strength, nor proprioception seem to be related to incidence or progression of knee OA
  • 4. In their small, yet interesting study, Willy et al. (2012) demonstrated that:
  • a) Biomechanical changes obtained during a brief gait retraining intervention translated into improved single-leg squat and step descent performance in the study group
  • b) In general, the changes observed were NOT maintained over the 3 month follow-up period
  • c) Hip adduction and contralateral pelvic drop were visibly improved after the treatment period
  • d) Only a and c are correct
  • 5. Nakagawa et al. (2012) evaluated kinematics and muscle activation in men and women with or without patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Which of the following statements best represents their findings?
  • a) Males and females with PFPS presented increased ipsilateral trunk lean, contralateral pelvic drop, hip adduction and knee abduction when compared to pain-free controls, while performing a single-leg squat
  • b) Males with PFPS presented decreased ipsilateral trunk lean, contralateral pelvic drop, hip adduction and knee abduction when compared to women with PFPS, while performing a single-leg squat
  • c) Only females with PFPS presented increased ipsilateral trunk lean, contralateral pelvic drop, hip adduction and knee abduction when compared to pain-free controls, while performing a single-leg squat
  • d) No consistent patterns were observed, highlighting the individual nature of the relationship between PFPS and kinematic/kinetic measurements
