Greater strength, endurance found in quadriceps after PCL tear vs ACL tear
Compared with ACL tears, the quadriceps muscle of the injured limb had greater strength and endurance after PCL tears, according to study results. The PCL tear group had higher total work and peak torque of the quadriceps muscle on the involved side vs. the ACL tear group, according to study results. However, the researchers also […]

Compared with ACL tears, the quadriceps muscle of the injured limb had greater strength and endurance after PCL tears, according to study results.

The PCL tear group had higher total work and peak torque of the quadriceps muscle on the involved side vs. the ACL tear group, according to study results. However, the researchers also found hamstring muscle strength and endurance on the involved side had no significant differences between the PCL tear group and the ACL tear group.
