Common Musculoskeletal Injuries in Women

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

18 Scopus citations


The causes of women's sports injuries are currently a topic of vigorous speculation in sports medicine. Research has yet to clearly link gender to any injury etiology. Meanwhile, physicians are analyzing gender differences to find ways that women can better condition themselves for sports, avoid injuries, and recover quickly from the injuries that do occur. An analysis of the most common problems active women face - anterior cruciate ligament, patellofemoral, shoulder, and foot injuries - suggests effective strategies for diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention.
