- •We evaluated inter-limb asymmetry in adolescents post-ACL reconstruction.
- •Inter-limb asymmetry was present throughout the entirety of a complex jumping task.
- •More load was consistently placed on the non-surgical limb.
- •The asymmetry was significantly greater compared to healthy controls.
