Abstract: 
Background: Recognition of kinesthesia impairs after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear and reconstruction surgery can significantly improve the situation.
Objective: The objective of the present study was to compare the Kinesthesia in patients with ACL tear before and after reconstruction surgery at acute phase.
Methods: In this Quasi- experimental study, 30 patients with ACL tear were recruited. The patients included 16 males and 14 females selected in a non probability sampling manner. The C. P. M, as a dependent variable, was used to test the Kinesthesia motion sense. Data were analyzed using paired t-test, ICC, SEM, and K-S tests.
Findings: The kinesthesia in the affected knee and at the speed of 0.5 m/s before and after surgery was 5.02±0.36 and 3.23±0.25 and at the speed of 2 m/s 1.95±0.16 and 0.85±0.04, respectively. The difference between the pre- and post-surgery was significant at both speeds employed (p<0.05).
Conclusion: It seems that the reconstructive surgery in patients with ACL tears at the acute phase is of high value in improving the kinesthesia.
