LOWER-EXTREMITY injuries account for more than 50% of injuries in college (1) and high school athletes (2), and among lower-extremity injuries, the knee is one of the most commonly injured regions of the body. Researchers have estimated health-care costs to be approximately $2.5 billion annually for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries (3). To prevent these injuries from occurring and allow for individuals to maintain healthy and physically active lifestyles, it is important to understand…

Tuck Jump Assessment for Reducing Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Risk.

TLDR
The purpose of this report is to discuss the current evidence related to modifiable ACL injury mechanisms during landing and to present a novel “clinician-friendly” assessment and training technique that can be used to identify these mechanisms in high-risk female athletes.

Rationale and Clinical Techniques for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Prevention Among Female Athletes.

TLDR
Dynamic neuromuscular training applied to the high-risk population may decrease ACL injury risk and help more female athletes enjoy the benefits of sports participation without the long-term disabilities associated with injury.

Mechanisms of anterior cruciate ligament injury.

TLDR
It is confirmed that most noncontact injuries occur with the knee close to extension during a sharp deceleration or landing maneuver, and passive protection of the ACL by the hamstring muscles may be reduced in patients with above-average flexibility.

TLDR
The rationale for training programs to reduce the incidence of knee injuries is presented and it is proposed that perturbation of the joint receptors reinforces the use of selective hamstrings and quadriceps co-contraction patterns superimposed on a generalized co- Contraction pattern.

A Prospective Study of Ankle Injury Risk Factors

TLDR
Analysis of the within-subject data demonstrated that plantarflex ion strength and the ratio of dorsiflexion to plantar flex ion strength was significantly different for the injured ankle compared with the contralateral uninjured ankle.

NEUROMUSCULAR TRAINING IMPROVES PERFORMANCE AND LOWER‐EXTREMITY BIOMECHANICS IN FEMALE ATHLETES

TLDR
The hypothesis that the combination of multiple-injury prevention-training components into a comprehensive program improves measures of performance and movement biomechanics is supported.

Preseason strength and flexibility imbalances associated with athletic injuries in female collegiate athletes.

TLDR
There was a trend for higher injury rates to be associated with knee flexor or hip extensor imbalances of 15% or more on either side of the body.

The Effects of Core Proprioception on Knee Injury

TLDR
Impaired core proprioception, measured by active proprioceptive repositioning of the trunk, predicted knee injury risk in female, but not male, athletes.

Injury Mechanisms for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries in Team Handball

TLDR
The injury mechanism for anterior cruciate ligament injuries in female team handball appeared to be a forceful valgus collapse with the knee close to full extension combined with external or internal rotation of the tibia.

Biomechanics of the patellofemoral joint.

The patellofemoral joint contains 2 complex mechanisms for ameliorating forces transmitted across it, namely increasing extensor lever arm-r in the important range of flexion 30 degrees-70 degrees
