The discussion surrounding ACL tears thus far has been almost entirely in relation to sports. 35,44 People can tear their ACLs without setting foot on a field or court. As I mentioned in the last chapter, the automobile is one culprit; whether that of a passenger or a pedestrian, the ACL can be torn by the forces involved in a car accident. Other traumatic causes include falls from heights and occupational accidents. It’s a scary world out there, to be sure, but the athletic arena should scare you the most, if the ACL is what you’re worried about.

Looser, less stable joints—and increased flexibility, and have a negative impact on neuromuscular coordination. Nevertheless, it remains unclear if this mechanism has an important role in female ACL injuries. Too much flexibility can be a bad thing for the ACL. Consider: if someone is double-jointed, he can touch his thumb to his forearm or hyperextend his elbow. Being loose jointed puts you at a higher risk for tearing your ACL, because your knee can get into a position that is at-risk, specifically with the leg relatively straight or hyperextended and the knee in valgus.

Being loose jointed puts you at a higher risk for tearing your ACL, because your knee can get into a position that is at-risk, specifically with the leg relatively straight or hyperextended and the knee in valgus. Landing in such a position could hyperextend the knee even more, putting a tremendous amount of stress on the ACL.

I have certainly treated many young females who have torn their ACLs prior to their first menstrual period and the hormonal surge that goes along with it.
