I'd be curious to know more about this. ACL injuries happen but are they is 1500 women a large enough of a group for this sort of a study? After all, ACL's don't happen all that often, do they? And why didn't they have a picture of Heather Mitts?
The ACL is an important knee ligament. Female athletes are at greater risk for ACL injuries than males doing similar sports. The study included 1,435 players on 61 women's soccer teams in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. For one season, 26 teams used the Prevent Injury and Enhance Performance (PEP) warm-up program. The other 35 teams served as a comparison group.
