Injuries Change Brain Function

The linked article highlights research which demonstrates that brain function changes after a knee injury. Of course, as P-DTR practitioners, we have know that for years, and we explain exactly how this occurs to our clients every day.

“A new study, published in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy, shows parts of the brain associated with leg movement lagged during recovery from an ACL injury. Through comparing brain scans, researchers could see the differences in brain activity in healthy adults, versus those recovering from ACL injuries, when extending and flexing the knee.”
