Knee injuries in athletes span from minor aches and pains to situations requiring major surgery and long rehab.
The one knee injury that every athlete dreads is a tear to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, that type of injury is now most common in female athletes.
Specialist say that women’s pelvis are made for child birth which makes them wider, and this leads to women being more likely to tear their ACL.
Some of the latest developments in ACL surgery include using part of a patient's hamstring to help repair the damaged ligament.
Some doctors use ligaments from a cadaver in the reconstructive surgery.
