Abstract

Some athletes may be more susceptible to at-risk knee positions during sports activities, but the underlying causes are not clearly defined. this article synthesizes in vivo, in vitro, and in silico (computer-simulated) data to delineate likely risk factors to the mechanism(s) of noncontact anterior cruciate ligament (acl) injuries. from these identified risk factors, we will discuss newly developed real-time screening techniques that can be used in training sessions to identify modifiable risk factors. techniques provided will target and correct altered mechanics that may reduce or eliminate risk factors and aid in the prevention of noncontact ACL injuries in high-risk athletes.
