ABSTRACT:

Background and Purpose: Anterior cruciate ligament  injuries are the most commonly affecting  ligamentous injury in the lower limb  which leads to reduced dynamic knee stability , functions and its associated factors result in reduced ability of returning to preinjuy level . Kinesiophobia (fear of reinjury) is the most cited reason for disappointing results post ACL reconstruction. Hence ,this study was performed to find the if there is a Prevalence of Kinesiophobia in young adults post Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study with 201 subjects of young adult age group (18-35years) was chosen by convenient sampling method was performed. The participants were 4 to 8 weeks post Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (even mensical injuries were included) and were self ambulatory with 100% weight bearing. They were made to fill the Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia in which scores above 37 were categorized as Kinesiophobic.

Results and Discussion: The mean age was 25.72±4.47 and the prevalence of Kinesiophobia was positive in 124 out of 201 subjects, which is 61.69% prevalence. Also results proved that, women (67.44%) are a higher risk of kinesiophobia than males (60.12%). This study shows that there is Kinesiophobia in majority of patients after Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery.

Conclusion: This study concludes that there is high prevalence (61.69%) of kinesiophobia in Young adults post ACL reconstruction at 4 to 8 weeks.

Key words: Ligamentous Injury , Tampa Scale Of Kinesiophobia ( TSK ), Fear Of Reinjury , Preinjury Level.
