Webinar: ACL Tears in Young Athletes: An Ounce of Prevention

July 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

The incidence of ACL tears in young athletes continues to rise, due in part to increased participation in cutting and pivoting sports throughout the year.  Athletes are participating in competitive sports at younger ages, and more young women are competing than ever before.  Body structure, biomechanics, and joint laxity increase risk among young women by as much as ten times compared to young men.

Unfortunately, an ACL tear can take a young athlete off the field for at least six months.  An ACL tear typically requires surgery to reconstruct the ligament, followed by extensive rehabilitation.  Join ONS Sports Medicine Specialist, Dr. Marc Kowalsky live to learn about how this vital ligament helps the knee to function, why it doesn’t heal on its own, and what young athletes can do to prevent a tear or rupture.
