Athletes, parents, coaches and officials must be made to understand that illegal play has the potential to cause serious injury, the study authors emphasized.

They added that this type of research can help reduce risk.

"The study of knee injury patterns in high school athletes is crucial for the development of evidence-based targeted injury prevention measures. We know that sports injury rates can be decreased through such efforts," Comstock said.
