Double-bundle versus single-bundle ACL reconstruction at 10-year follow-up. Which technique will win? http://ow.ly/TWH530fkX35
Mick Hughes goes deep on some myths regarding ACL injury.
NEW BLOG! ACL: True or False.
In my latest blog I attempt to dispel a couple of myths surrounding ACL injury. I hope you enjoy the read!
Females ages 13-17 have experienced a 59% increase in the # of required reconstruction procedures over the last 13 yrs, researchers said.
There’s good evidence that these programs can be effective at reducing injuries but the problem is nobody’s doing them.
225 high school athletes (40% females) performed a one repetition maximum (1RM) barbell squat to measure lower extremity strength. There were 63 knee injuries i...ncluding 18 ACL injuries. Weak females had x9.5 higher odds of sustaining a knee injury and x7 higher odds of an ACL injury. For females, lifting 105% of bodyweight was the best cut-off for distinguishing high vs low risk. No strength–injury relationships were seen in males.
