Are Women At Higher Risk of ACL Injury?
The causes of ACL injury have recently been the focus of research. Factors contributing to ACL injuries include ground hardness, grass type, and cleat type. But one of the other major findings is that women are nearly three times more likely to have ACL injuries than men. And some statistics say that a female soccer player is eight times more likely to injury her ACL than a male soccer player. Statistically, participants in women’s basketball and soccer are at a higher risk to tear an ACL. So it’s even more important that women stay mindful while playing sports since they are more likely to become injured from participation.
