A quick review of knee injury literature reveals one main theme: Within the scope of human movement, the knee is an poor design given the complexity of the demands on it.
According to the NCAA statistics compiled in 2011, women are still tearing their ACL’s at nearly 4 times the rates of men in soccer and basketball. Plus—total knee replacements in America have doubled in the last 10 years.
But some still manage to play professional football, squat thousands of pounds, and win Olympic medals without injury to this bad “design”. Think of the number of load cycles this is on this “fragile” system in a month, a year, or a decade. The knee is not the problem. In this tutorial, you will:
- Understand the basic anatomy and physiology of the knee
- Gain knowledge of the mechanisms of knee injury
- Learn about common pathology and disease in the knee
