To prospectively evaluate the effect of neuromuscular training on the incidence of knee injury in female athletes, we monitored two groups of female athletes, one trained before sports participation and the other not trained, and a group of untrained male athletes throughout the high school soccer, volleyball, and basketball seasons. [...] Key Method Weekly reports included the number of practice and competition exposures and mechanism of injury. There were 14 serious knee injuries in the 1263 athletes tracked…Expand
A comparison of factors influencing ACL injury in male and female athletes and non-athletes
TLDR
It is suggested that laxity is related more to athletic participation than gender; therefore, knee joint laxity may not explain the higher incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in females, however, gender differences in peak torque suggest that strength may influence the higher knee injury incidence in female athletes.

Neuromuscular and Hormonal Factors Associated With Knee Injuries in Female Athletes
TLDR
The immediate objectives of this review are to examine how female and male athletes differ in neuromuscular and ligamentous control of the lower extremity and the effects of neuromUScular training on knee stability. Expand
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. Expand
Effectiveness of a Neuromuscular and Proprioceptive Training Program in Preventing Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries in Female Athletes
TLDR
Using a neuromuscular training program may have a direct benefit in decreasing the number of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in female soccer players. Expand
Perturbation-enhanced neuromuscular training alters muscle activity in female athletes
TLDR
Modulation of activity and timing of ACL agonist musculature from before to after training resulted in normal quadriceps-hamstring balance and increased active stiffness, which may reduce the risk of biomechanical strain injury among a high risk population. Expand
Prevention of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injury
Along with the increase in number of female athletic participants, the number of resultant athletic injuries among female athletes has also rapidly increased. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuryExpand
Concussion as a risk factor for lower extremity musculoskeletal injury in collegiate athletes
TLDR
The results of this study revealed that concussed athletes were at increased risk of future lower extremity musculoskeletal injury after RTP following a concussion. Expand
Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries in Female Athletes
TLDR
This review summarizes conclusions based on evidence from the common components of the various interventions to discuss their potential to reduce anterior cruciate ligament injury risk and assess their potential for combined use in more effective and efficient intervention protocols. Expand
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. Expand
The relationship between the use of foot orthoses and knee ligament injury in female collegiate basketball players.
TLDR
Foot orthoses may contribute to a decreased knee ligament injury rate in female collegiate basketball players. Expand

SummaryFemale athletes are at increased risk for certain sports-related injuries, particularly those involving the knee. Factors that contribute to this increased risk are the differences in sportsExpand
Neuromuscular Performance Characteristics in Elite Female Athletes
TLDR
Although no significant differences were found in either spinal or cortical muscle reaction times, the muscle recruitment order in some female athletes was markedly different and appeared to rely more on their quadriceps muscles in response to anterior tibial translation. Expand

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. Expand

TLDR
The lowest injury rate was found among the 19- to 24- year-old athletes and the highest injury rates was foundAmong the oldest age group (≥25 years), collision with another player was the most common activity at the time of injury, accounting for 31 % of all injuries. Expand
