Abstract

Athletes can be more susceptible to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries for various reasons, including improper landing techniques, valgus motions, and imbalanced musculature. Research suggests that female athletes are more prone to ACL injuries than male athletes, although the mechanisms are not clear. This comprehensive literature review examines numerous articles regarding the complexity of the causes of ACL injuries, potential preventative training strategies, and a better understanding of the increased risk of injury in female athletes. The purpose of this literature review is to achieve a better understanding of mechanisms of ACL injuries and possible preventative strategies.
