Retearing Your ACL

A torn ACL can be a career-ending injury. Studies have shown that once an athlete has torn his or her ACL, the chance of re-tearing it is six times greater. Additionally, once a female athlete has torn her ACL, she becomes 16 times more likely to tear her ACL in the other knee. This is why it is especially important for female athletes to follow the right steps to prevent an ACL injury from happening.

 

Women of all ages are constantly pushing their own physical limits and challenging what it means to be a female athlete. But it’s much more common for women to tear their ACL than men. Find out the best ways to keep yourself from getting injured in this interesting article from Johns Hopkins:
