Meta-analysis of post ACL reconstruction return to sport suggests that despite approximately 90% of patients achieving successful outcomes in terms of objectively measurable knee function, only 63% return to their pre-injury sport participation rate. This leads one to question what factors other than knee function may contribute to such a discrepancy. Prior studies have shown psychological factors, such as fear of re-injury, can play in role in whether a patient returns to play. However, the role of patient resilience on recovery is less clear. This research will examine the effect of patient resilience on post-ACLR return to sport. The Brief Resiliency Scale (BRS), a proven method of assessing ability to recover from stressful situations, will be used to evaluate patient resilience. The role of resilience on recovery post shoulder surgery, as well as rehabilitation in post-operative orthopaedic geriatric patients has been examined; however, the effect of resilience on specifically ACLR return to sport has yet to be studied.
This research will provide insight as to how to identify patients at high risk for not returning to sport, the first step in improving return to sport outcomes in ACL reconstruction patients.
