  • ACL Impressions In Female Athletes

    This study seeks to explore and explain why ACL injuries are more prevalent in female athletes. FACTORS OF ACL TEARS ACL injuries are due to many different factors besides the way a person lands or moves their legs. Some of those factors depend on an athlete’s age and/or the length and frequency they play, whether it be in an actual game or practice.

Even though injuries in general are not biased to any age, the prevalence of ACL injuries can occur in those between the ages of fifteen and forty five, because of how active they are. Sports injuries happen to people regardless of…
