Nearly a million anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur each year worldwide. Such injuries can cause long-term problems in the knee joint, including in particular the early onset of osteoarthritis. It has been evident for some time that a tremendous gender disparity exists in noncontact ACL injuries in sports, and this aspect has been the subject of intensive research.
---Provides step-by-step details of training programs of proven value in reducing the rate of noncontact ACL injuries in female athletes
---Describes the risk factors for ACL injuries in female athletes using data from hypothesis-driven investigations
---Summarizes hundreds of published studies, providing a clear understanding of the short- and long-term impacts of ACL injuries

This textbook, focusing on female athletes, reviews and discusses:

The short- and long-term impacts of ACL injuries
Risk factors and possible causes of the higher injury risk in females
Neuromuscular training programs and their effectiveness in reducing noncontact ACL injury rates in females
Sports-specific programs for a range of sports with proven improvements in athletic performance
Rehabilitation programs after ACL reconstruction that reduce the risk of a future injury
Worldwide implementation of neuromuscular retraining

The book will be of value to orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers, sports medicine primary care physicians, and strength and conditioning specialists.
