During the recent past, much sports medicine research has centered on the disproportionate number of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in female athletes. Epidemiologic evidence indicates that females are three to eight times more likely to suffer non-contact ACL injuries than their male counterparts. Although the exact reason for this discrepancy is not known, many hypotheses exist that propose intrinsic and extrinsic factors which leave females more susceptible to this injury.
