Abstract

The cause of ACL injury in female athletes is multifactorial, with both intrinsic and extrinsic factors contributing. Health care professionals need to educate female athletes, their coaches, and their parents about the two most important factors, neuromuscular and biomechanical, that cause injury, in addition to strategies and exercises that may prevent injuries.
