The Statistics 

● Female athletes are 6 to 8 times more likely to tear their ACL than males athletes 

● Why are females are more likely to tear their ACL? 

○ Monthly hormonal changes cause a change in the stiffness of the ACL 

○ Wider hips (Q angle) create a valgus (inward) angle of knee 

○ Smaller ACL 

○ Dynamic neuromuscular differences 

○ Muscle imbalances and weakness due to quadricep dominance

 

How We Help with ACL Prevention

 

● Analyze running, jumping/landing, and deceleration mechanics 

● Learn a proper Dynamic warm-up 

● Increase power and stability, focusing on proper landing mechanics and change of direction technique 

● Develop single-leg strength, addressing potential muscle imbalances, such as hamstrings and glutes relative to quadriceps 

● Conditioning utilizing change of direction training
