Book Description :

Nearly a million anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur each year worldwide, causing long-term problems in the knee joint. This textbook examines the short- and long-term impacts of ACL injuries on the basis of hundreds of published studies. Risk factors for such injuries are explored using data from hypothesis-driven investigations, and possible causes of the higher risk of noncontact ACL injuries in female athletes are analyzed. Neuromuscular training programs shown to reduce the rate of these injuries in female athletes are described in step-by-step detail with the aid of numerous color photographs and video demonstrations. In addition, detailed descriptions are provided for rehabilitation programs to be used after ACL reconstruction in order to reduce the risk of a future injury. The book will be of value to orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers, sports medicine primary care physicians, and strength and conditioning specialists.

Book Description :

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most commonly injured ligaments of the knee, with female athletes sustaining ACL injuries at a 2-8 fold greater rate compared to male athletes. An ACL injury can be devastating and significantly increases the athlete's risk for osteoarthritis long term. While many advances have been made in terms of surgical and rehabilitation treatments for ACL injured patients, long term outcome studies show that these patients are at a high risk for developing knee osteoarthritis 10-15 years after ACL injury, regardless of the treatment. Currently, the mechanism of non-contact ACL injury is not well understood. In order to design successful ACL injury prevention programs and address the high rates of ACL injuries in the female athlete population, a better understanding of the non-contact ACL injury mechanism must be established. Utilizing a new interdisciplinary, multi-faceted approach to study ACL loading and injury mechanisms in female athletes, we explored the mechanical responses of the ACL to loads using computer mathematical modeling and three-dimensional motion analysis techniques. The computer model developed for this project is a valuable tool that can be readily manipulated to examine knee joint motions and loads and may be utilized as a tool to predict which athletes are at high risk of ACL injury. Prevention of even a portion of these ACL injuries would allow many athletes to receive the health benefits of sports participation and avoid the long term sequelae of disability associated with knee osteoarthritis.

Book Description :

"Female athletes have become the poster children for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in recent years. This has lead to increased attention from research. There is now a vast amount of articles about ACL injuries and the library keeps growing. The purpose of this thesis is to review the current literature on ACL injury related to etiology, pathology and prevention. Through my research an additional topic arose. This is highlighted in a further section, psychosocial factors. Original research was conducted to gain a preliminary look at how playing multiple sports at one time, or specializing in one sport in high school, affects injury rates and what was the greatest influence on the decision to play club sports. The results from the literature review revealed that valgus stress at the knee and the imbalance between the force couple of the hamstrings and quadriceps are the most responsive to correction through training. The research supports that by correcting those two etiological risk factors female athletes can reduce their risk for ACL injury. Additional research is needed to look at how psychosocial factors [are] related to ACL injuries"--Abstract.

Book Description :

Of all the important factors that must be considered when assessing and treating an athlete, the impact of patient sex is perhaps the most critical, yet historically has often been neglected. The "same injury" in a male patient may present differently, sometimes in subtle ways, than in a female patient and may require a different treatment approach. The Female Athlete, edited by Dr. Rachel Frank, provides concise, expert coverage of the ways in which common sports medicine injuries present in female patients versus male patients, describing recent literature analyzing sex differences in injury patterns and available treatment options. Provides a comprehensive review of key areas of importance related to care for women in sports, including the differences in care and treatment for male and female patients. Covers many of the most common injuries female athletes face, including ACL injuries, shoulder instability, concussion, stress fractures, female overuse injuries, and more. Considers prevention strategies, nutritional recommendations, as well as exercise recommendations for women during pregnancy.

Book Description :

Around 400,000 people tear their anterior cruciate ligaments (ACLs) every year in the United States. The majority of these injuries occur during athletics, and most commonly to females. Their neuromuscular abilities, anatomies, and hormones put female athletes at a much higher risk of ACL injury than male athletes. The current gold standard of treatment, ACL reconstruction, is an imperfect technique at best. It leaves patients with much higher risk of both ACL reinjury and early onset of osteoarthritis. Prevention programs, aimed at reducing the neuromuscular risk factors in female athletes, have proved to effectively reduce the number of noncontact ACL injuries in many studies since the late 1990s. Despite their demonstrated success, ACL prevention programs are not commonplace in high school and collegiate athletics today. It is the responsibility of the athletes, parents, and coaches to educate themselves on the elevated risks of ACL injuries for female athletes. Furthermore, coaches, athletic trainers, and athletic directors must work together to create and implement ACL prevention programs specifically tailored to their sports teams' needs to eliminate this painful and detrimental commonality in today's female athletics. With the dedication to spreading knowledge about ACL injuries and implementing prevention programs, the number of ACL injuries in female athletes will undoubtedly decrease.

"In this study, we examine how injuries create psychological problems [for] female athletes. Specifically, how injured female athlete's psychological health is affected due to the lingering distress the injury generated. Traditionally athletes who obtain a season ending injury are removed from the sport and have surgery. After a few weeks to a month rehabilitation occurs (5-7 months or longer) and a physical is performed to return the athlete to play after therapy is completed. The is the physical therapy course that some many athletes shadow for injuries. Sadly, nothing is ever tested for an athlete's psychological health before returning to play. The results in this study revealed anticipated answers mixed with unexpected data corresponding to themes. This included: Fear of Avoidance, Tampa Scale for Kinesiophobia, and Psychological Readiness to Return to Sport questionnaires associate with the themes: fear, stress, and identification" -- from the abstract, l.iii.

Book Description :

Background and Purpose. An estimated 100,000 anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur each year in the United States. With the rising costs of health care associated with surgery and rehabilitation, a better understanding of the predisposing factors that lead to the higher prevalence of female non-contact ACL injuries compared to their male counterparts is critical. This study evaluated the isometric strength ratios of the muscles acting in the transverse and frontal plane of the hip in female athletes with and without non-contact ACL injury. Methods. Isometric muscle strength of the adductors/abductors (Add/Abd) and the external rotators/internal rotators (ER/IR) of the hip were evaluated with a hand-held dynamometer that was mounted upon an examination table customized specifically to meet the needs of this study. Thirty-five female subjects participated in this study, n=16 athletes had previously sustained a non-contact ACL injury, and n=19 served as uninjured athletic controls. Results. Results from the current study indicated no difference upon comparison of the isometric hip muscle strength ratios of the dominant versus non-dominant lower extremities of uninjured female athletes for Add/Abd (p=0.75), and ER/IR (p=0.76). There were also no differences apparent in the muscle recruitment patterns when comparing the ACL-injured lower extremity of the experimental group to that of the like-dominant lower extremity of the athletic control group. Lastly, side-to-side comparison of the injured groups involved versus uninvolved lower extremity also revealed no significant difference for the Add/Abd (p=0.91), and for the (ER/IR p=0.61) of the hip. Conclusion and Discussion. Findings from this study revealed no significant difference in the antagonistic isometric muscle strength ratios of the muscles acting in the frontal and transverse plane of the hip upon comparison of non-contact ACL injured and uninjured female athletes participating in basketball, volleyball, and soccer. Further research is warranted to explore dynamic strength testing and determine if proximal strength imbalances of the hip are a predisposing factor for the large number of non-contact ACL injuries within female athletes.

Book Description :

Problem: It is known that anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are significantly more common in female athletes than male athletes. Research has looked at anatomical, hormonal and biomechanical risk factors for ACL tears in female athletes. Biomechanical risk factors are an important focus when discussing ACL injury prevention because biomechanical deviations have potential for correction with the appropriate training. Methods: The Weill Cornell Medical College electronic libraries were used to conduct the literature search. The literature search was accomplished using PubMed with the key words `ACL injuries AND female athletes' and `ACL injury prevention AND neuromuscular training program'. The search was limited to articles published within the last 5 years. There were 11 additional articles from earlier years and one additional source included because of their significance to the topic and later research was dependent on results of these previous studies. Results: The articles included in the literature review provided specifics about modifiable risk factors for ACL tears in female athletes. Biomechanical risk factors provide the best avenue for ACL injury prevention through neuromuscular training programs. Conclusions: Future research should continue to analyze the specific neuromuscular training programs that provide the most effective ACL injury prevention and the age group when implementing training is most effective. Currently, studies have focused on neuromuscular training programs for club, high school and collegiate athletes and the programs show injury reduction.

Book Description :

This book presents the incidence of sports-related injuries, the types of injuries specific to particular sports, and the importance of factors such as age and gender. Possible injury mechanisms and risk factors are presented based on an analysis involving recent scientific findings. A variety of sports are included to allow the reader to better generalize the results as well as to apply appropriate procedures to specific sports. The authors have emphasized basic scientific findings to help the reader gain a broad knowledge of sports injuries. The potential audience includes medical doctors, physical therapists, athletic trainers, coaches and interested parents. This book is expected to play a prominent role in the construction of training programs for both healthy and injured players. The focus on junior athletes will aid in their education, injury prevention and increased performance. It will also benefit instructors at the junior and senior high school levels. The book is composed of seven parts. In the beginning part, current situations and the general characteristics of sports-related injuries are outlined on the basis of an investigation utilizing statistical data involving a large number of populations. In the following parts, detailed information on the injuries in terms of the types of sports activities, body sites, symptoms and the relationships among these factors are discussed. Part 2, for example, deals with topics on concussion and severe head–neck injuries which occur frequently in rugby and judo. In Parts 3 and 4, as one of the major sports-related injuries, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are discussed. Beginning with the underlying mechanisms as assessed by using the latest measuring techniques, characteristic features of their occurrence are described. Further, Part 4 deals with topics on post-operative (ACL reconstruction) aspects of ACL injuries, especially those related to muscle functions and tendon regeneration in the hamstring muscles. Part 5 deals with muscle strain and focuses particularly on those occurring in the hamstring muscles, as this muscle group is known, as one of the most frequent sites of muscle strain. In Part 6, disorders related to the ankle and foot are introduced. Finally, Part 7 provides information on lower back disorders. Included are detailed mechanisms of their incidence, epidemiology and implications for their prevention.
