This paper examines the effectiveness of implementing neuromuscular and proprioceptive training programs in female athletes and their ability to decrease the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. The relationship of sex, age, and training on the incidence of ACL injury is pivotal in developing a comprehensive neuromuscular and proprioceptive training program to decrease ACL injuries occurring in female athletes. Silvers HJ, Giza ER, Mandelbaum BR.

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are common in athletes participating in sports requiring jumping and pivoting maneuvers. Recent research has attempted to identify potential risk factors and to develop interventions to address these risk factors in order to help prevent ACL injuries. Neuromuscular, hormonal, anatomic, and environmental factors have been studied. Interventions addressing neuromuscular factors appear particularly promising. This article reviews and summarizes current data regarding ACL injury risk factors and prevention efforts.
