ACL reconstructions using current methods do not fully restore normal knee kinematics, despite advanced surgical procedures and rehabilitation. In addition, the injury creates long-term changes in the biochemical environment of the knee joint, which is believed by some investigators to be a significant factor in the development of subsequent joint arthritis [14].
