Specialized Warm-Up May Reduce Girls' Knee Injuries
Date:11/7/2011

ar more common among females than males, is a major concern, said Dr. Victor Khabie, co-chief of the Orthopedics and Spine Institute at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, N.Y. Females may be more susceptible because of the way they land after a jump, he said.

"Females tend to land with their knees more hyper-extended and somewhat knock-kneed, which theoretically places a great deal of tension on the ACL, leading to tears," he said.

Khabie said he suspects that the neuromuscular warm-up "trains" female athletes how to jump and land with "better biomechanics," thus reducing the risk of an ACL tear.

"More widespread use of this warm-up protocol should be considered by coaches and trainers working with female athletes to help prevent serious knee injuries," Khabie said.
