Women and Risk of Knee Injuries

We are seeing a growing number of knee injuries in female athletes as females play sports that are more aggressive and require more turning, twisting and changing. The actual injuries can occur, and when they occur, it can cause problems with strength and flexibility. One of the issues is a woman has more joint laxity. As a result, when she moves or shifts, there actually can be a shift in increased pressure on the tendons and ligaments. With that pressure can come stretching and ultimately knee injuries.

We always appreciate your comments.
