This paper appraises a 2018 article published in the American College of Sports Medicine about the effectiveness of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) treatment on the quadriceps muscles on anterior collateral ligament reconstruction (ACLR) patients. The introduction contains background information that helped formulate the clinical question which is then followed by a description of methods used to select the article. The following results section has a summary of the article along with the appraisal of study's introduction, methods, results, and discussion. In the discussion the significance and main findings of the articles are reviewed and the relevance to clinical practice is presented. Lastly, there is a discussion about the use of NMES intervention being applied to future rehabilitation protocols.
