More on ACL and Achilles Injuries

Injuries to the ACL are relatively common knee injuries among athletes and occur frequently sports involving pivoting (such as football, basketball, gymnastics and skiing). They can range from small tears to full ruptures. Most Achilles tendon ruptures also follow on from traumatic sports injuries.

Both injuries affect athletes in their 20s and 30s, with reported higher ACL injury incidence in females, and Achilles in males. Greater participation and physicality of at-risk sports mean men may present more commonly for both conditions.
