Physical rehabilitation in the form of voluntary wheel running mitigates force imbalance developed as a result of VML injury. Maximal isometric torque prior to tenotomy of the EDL was normalized to the maximal isometric torque after tenotomy of the EDL. Values are mean ± SEM. Sample size is listed in Table 3. * ≠ uninjured (contralateral); § ≠ sedentary injured; p < 0.05.
