BMD differences in the hip region are significant in patients who are postoperative ACL reconstruction. Measurements at specific hip sites demonstrated greater differences in bone mineral status than measurements of the entire lower extremity. The use of weight-bearing activities to improve bone status for patient’s post-ACL reconstruction is an area of study that should undergo further testing
