Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are very common, causing pain, loss of function, and medical expense. Women sustain ACL injuries more often than men. Most of these injuries (70%) are non-contact for women [1], occurring during pivoting or sudden deceleration [2]. Training programs have been developed to try to prevent these injuries in women. These programs are designed to improve strength, muscle balance, and knee control. Evaluating the effectiveness of training programs is difficult. To date, these evaluations have only assessed factors such as muscle activation and joint angles that are not directly related to ACL strain and ACL injury risk.
