Do yourself a favor and read this information, take this to heart if you have a young athlete in your life.

Here’s a clear, informative article to read that discusses the gender differences in how often ACL tears of the knee occur in girls and boys.  I am an athlete, and would have loved to have this information as I was growing up.  I played every sport I had access too, and have always been glad for what Title 9 did for myself and other girls growing up in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.  If you have a child or children ages 9 and higher, check out what our friends at Body By X Gym – Skills Development and Training Center have to say about prevention of ACL injuries.  This particular injory can be devastating, and ruin chances for an athletic scholarship, or simply freedom from knee pain while being physically active for a life time.

Thank you to Nadia McClinton, Co-Owner of Body By X Gym – Skills Development and Training Center for sharing this important information with us all.
