Surgery and Shattered Dreams
Most athletes require surgery and a year of recovery to get back to sports. Many never return to the same level of competition and lose out on big opportunities.
More torn ACLs every year
The injury rate is increasing 2.3% per year. High-risk sports include soccer, basketball, football, lacrosse, snow-skiing, etc.
Females are 6-9x more likely
Females have a MUCH higher rate of ACL injury compared to males, although all athletes who jump, cut, and pivot quickly are at high-risk.
