Alarming Number of ACL Injuries
MOR Physicians Urge Prevention
Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR) and the Illinois Athletic Trainers Association (IATA) are launching a statewide program calling for ACL injury screenings and prevention programs for athletes who play on school and travel teams. National studies show a dramatic rise in ACL injuries - especially in female athletes - over the past 10 years. ACL injuries
can lead to arthritis and other knee problems in aging athletes. Studies show that athletes can reduce their risk of injury as much as 72 percent by adhering to a knee strengthening and conditioning program. The sports medicine physicians at MOR and the IATA have rolled out Knees for Life
, a public awareness program that urges coaches and athletic trainers to institute ACL injury screenings and prevention programs for athletes at risk.
