New Research Article on Female ACL Injuries

Dr. Burnham co-authored a research study with Dr. Vonda Wright on female ACL tears. Dr. Wright is an orthopaedic surgeon who is an expert in sports medicine and fitness. This article reviews the most recent research on ACL injuries in female athletes. The rate of anterior cruciate ligament injuries is on the rise in female athletes. It is important that ACL surgery is not done on a “one-size-fits-all” basis, but rather must be individualized for each patient. ACL rehabilitation programs should target the hip, core, and trunk neuromuscular control. A team approach including the surgeon, athletic trainer, physical therapist, coach, family, and patient is paramount to success.

The research study was performed at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Sports Medicine.
