Abstract: 

The purpose of this nonexperimental study was to compare 5 functional preformance tests between ACL deficients & healthy males. These tests includes co-contraction semicircular, carioca, shuttle run, timed hop and cross over hop. Functional tests are used to assess readiness of the subject to progress to another level of rehabilitation, to return to athletic practice, or to discharge. Selection of the appropriate battery of tests is important to maximize information about the patient’s functional capacities. Inthis study 16 males with ACL injury(group1) & 32 healthy males(group2) participated. Descriptive statistics for each parameter and variables measured in this research was done. Also two sample analysis for each functional tests between groups was done. Results: 1. Significant difference wasn’t seen in co-contraction semicircular test between two groups(P>0.05). 2. Significant difference was seen for carioca, shuttle run, timed hop and cross over hop tests between two groups(P<0.05). Above functional tests are objective measurment methods of functional instability which can be performed in a clinical setting, do not involve expensive equipment and require minimal time.
