dc.description.abstractObjective: To compare lower limb strength and countermovement jump (CMJ) kinetics between elite female footballers with and without a history of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), hamstring strain, or hip/groin injury. Design: Cross-sectional. Setting: Field-based. Participants: 369 elite female Australian football, soccer and rugby league players aged 15–35. Main outcome measures: Isometric hip adductor and abductor strength, eccentric knee flexor strength, and CMJ vertical ground reaction forces, including between-leg asymmetry. Players reported their lifetime history of ACLR, and whether they had sustained a hamstring strain, or hip/groin injury in the previous 12-months. Results: Players with a unilateral history of ACLR (n = 24) had significant between-leg asymmetry in eccentric knee flexor strength (mean = −6.3%, 95%CI = −8.7 to −3.9%, P < .001), isometric hip abductor strength (mean = −2.5%, 95%CI = −4.3 to −0.7%, P = .008), and CMJ peak landing force (mean = −5.5%, 95%CI = −10.9 to −0.1%, P = .046). Together, between-leg asymmetry in eccentric knee flexor strength, isometric hip abductor strength, and CMJ peak landing force distinguished between players with and without prior ACLR with 93% accuracy. Conclusion: Elite female footballers with a history of ACLR, but not hamstring or hip/groin injury, exhibit persistent between-leg asymmetries in lower limb strength and jump kinetics following a return to sport.
