She reflects back on her experience and wonders how “prevention” and “awareness” may have changed the course of her life for the better, saving her from the social, emotional, and financial challenges that she encountered through her college years.
Highest risk for ACL injuries
Female athletes in sports that involve pivoting, jumping, and quickly changing directions are at the highest risk for ACL injuries. Soccer, volleyball, rugby, football, basketball, and snow-skiing have extremely high rates of ACL injuries. Females are 6-8 times more likely than males to tear their ACL.
Prevent ACL injuries with proper training
Research proves that neuromuscular training programs reduce non-contact ACL injuries. Good training programs will include sport-specific hip and core strengthening, balance training, and agility and plyometrics activities. Athletes can protect themselves from injury by following a simple exercise program.
