  • Female Athletes (ACL injuries)

    The risk of sustaining an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) rupture is estimated to be
    4-6 times greater in females than that of their male counterparts.

    Netball in particular is a high-risk sport for the ACL with many such injuries requiring
    knee reconstruction each season. There is emerging evidence that specific training methods
    may be able to reduce the risk of these injuries and the Yorkshire Knee Clinic specialists
    are working with local specialist physiotherapists and clubs to evaluate and advise on
    these methods.

    As with all knee injuries early knee specialist assessment to provide clear diagnosis and
    treatment options is advised.
