  • Female Athletes (ACL Injuries)

    Evidence suggests women are 4-6 times more likely to suffer an ACL injury than men.

    Netball in particular is a high-risk sport for tearing the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament). It is
    not uncommon for a netball team to have several players tear their ACL each season,
    which then require reconstruction. There is emerging evidence that specific training methods
    may be able to reduce the risk of these injuries. The Yorkshire Knee Clinic’s orthopaedic
    consultants are working with local specialist physiotherapists and clubs to evaluate
    and advise on these methods.

    If you suffer a knee injury as a result of your sport, early and expert assessment is vital.

    Talk to Yorkshire Knee Clinic’s knee specialists about the diagnosis and treatment options
    that can help you get back to the sport you love faster.
