Preventing ACL Injuries in Women

Tearing an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) can be an athlete’s worst nightmare. And it turns out, female athletes are four times more likely to injure their ACLs than their male counterparts.

The disparity has been the subject of several research studies, and it appears several factors contribute to the increased incidence of injury among women, including hamstring strength, as well as weakness in the gluteus medias and external hip rotators. The good news is there are proven techniques for reducing the incidence of these injuries.

The ACL is a major ligament located in the middle of the knee. One of its functions is to help stabilize the knee during rotation. However, male and female athletes put different stress on the ligament when pivoting or landing from a jump, said Dr. Tim Lehman, a sports medicine specialist at Panorama Orthopedics & Spine Center.

“Men tend to use their quadriceps and hamstrings equally, while women fire their quads more,” Lehman said. “We know strengthening certain muscles in females athletes dramatically reduces the incidence of injury.”

Women also have a narrower notch in the distal femur, the bone just above the knee joint where ligaments come together, so there is an increased risk of the ligament getting trapped or pinched when the leg is fully extended. There also appears to be a relationship between ACL injury and hormone fluctuations during a woman’s menstrual cycle, though that relationship isn’t completely understood.
