Background Among female athletes it has not been established whether a neuromuscular and proprioceptive sports-specific training program will consistently reduce the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament injuries. Purpose To determine whether a neuromuscular and proprioceptive performance program was effective in decreasing the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament injury within a select population of competitive female youth soccer players. Study Design Cohort study; Level of evidence, 2… 
A Randomized Controlled Trial to Prevent Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in Female Collegiate Soccer Players
TLDR
A simple on-field alternative warm-up program, which focuses on neuromuscular control, appears to reduce the risk of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in collegiate female soccer players, especially those with a history of anterior cruiser ligament injury.
Neuromuscular retraining intervention programs: do they reduce noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injury rates in adolescent female athletes?

TLDR
Three ACL intervention programs successfully reduced noncontact ACL injury incidence rates in female adolescent athletes, with wide variability among all programs in the frequency, duration, and timing of training.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear Prevention in the Female Athlete
TLDR
This research foundation endorses further epidemiologic and biomechanic studies to determine the exact mechanism of ACL injury and the most effective intervention that will effectively decrease ACL injuries in this high-risk population.
Reducing the Risk of Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries in the Female Athlete
TLDR
To determine which risk factors for noncontact anterior cruciate ligament ruptures are significant, future investigations should include larger cohorts of athletes in multiple sports, analyze factors from all of the major risk categories, and follow athletes for at least one full athletic season.
Neuromuscular Retraining in Female Adolescent Athletes: Effect on Athletic Performance Indices and Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Rates
TLDR
A supervised neuromuscular retraining program was developed, aimed at achieving significant reductions in injury rates and improvements in athletic performance indices; both of which may increase compliance and motivation of athletes to participate.
Preventive Neuromuscular Training for Young Female Athletes: Comparison of Coach and Athlete Compliance Rates.
TLDR
Coach compliance was greater in the experimental group than in the control group, and was greater at the high school than the middle school level, while athlete compliance did not differ by study arm, sport, or school level.
Effects of Sports Injury Prevention Training on the Biomechanical Risk Factors of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in High School Female Basketball Players
TLDR
The sports injury prevention training program improved the strength and flexibility of the competitive female basketball players tested and biomechanical properties associated with anterior cruciate ligament injury as compared with pretraining parameters and with posttraining parameters in the control group.
Neuromuscular control training programs and noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injury rates in female athletes: a numbers-needed-to-treat analysis.
TLDR
A Strength of Recommendation Taxonomy level of evidence of 1 with a grade B recommendation supports the use of neuromuscular training programs in the prevention of noncontact ACL injuries in female athletes.
The Influence of Age on the Effectiveness of Neuromuscular Training to Reduce Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in Female Athletes
TLDR
It may be optimal to initiate integrative NMT programs during early adolescence, before the period of altered mechanics that increase injury risk, according to both biomechanical and epidemiological data.

TLDR
There may be an increased risk of ACL injury during the week prior to or after the start of the menstrual period, as well as injury mechanisms and possible risk factors, including menstrual status, in highlevel team handball players.
Anterior cruciate ligament injuries in the female athlete. Potential risk factors.

The most recent scientific studies of intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors thought to be contributing to the high rate of female anterior cruciate ligament injuries will be reviewed, important differences will be highlighted, and recommendations proposed to alleviate or minimize these risk factors among female athletes will be reported where appropriate.
Plyometric Training in Female Athletes
TLDR
This program was designed to decrease landing forces by teaching neuromuscular control of the lower limb dur ing landing and to increase vertical jump height and may have a significant effect on knee stabilization and prevention of serious knee injury among female athletes.

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.
Prevention of ACL Injuries
TLDR
Some investigators suggest that the size of the intercondylar notch should be used to identify athletes at risk for ACL damage, but more research is required before clinical decisions can be based on notch width measurements.
The anterior cruciate ligament enigma. Injury mechanisms and prevention.
TLDR
One possible factor to help reduce the frequency of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in women may be in proper instruction for performing cutting and landing maneuvers which will lower their center of gravity thereby denying the quadriceps the opportunity to shift the tibia anteriorly.
