Torn ACL…Can Happen to Anybody

January 7th, 2008 · No Comments ·


Although ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) injury happens more to females because of their natural biomechanical characterisitcs, I highly recommend males, athlete or not, taking the initiatives to prevent such devastating injury. Not only a person can suffer ACL injury from his or her natural body movements, but he or she can get injured by poor flexibility, stability, and imbalanced muscles strength. Experts recommend preventing ACL injury by:

  1. landing with bent hips and knees
  2. focusing on knee alignment when landing
  3. taking smaller steps when changing directions
  4. increasing complexity of exercises only after proper training
