- Sports that require quick cutting or weaving, along with frequent pivoting, are the riskiest for ACL tears--such as soccer, basketball, and football.
- Lack of cross-training in multiple sports, employing various muscle groups, leads to “overuse injuries” when the same sport is played over and over. This contributes to stressed and weakened ligaments that are ripe for a tear or injury.
- Athletic trainers, coaches, physicians, and parents are getting better at recognizing the signs of an ACL injury resulting in more definitive and frequent diagnoses.
