Knee injuries are common in youth athletes with up to 1 in 4 athletes at risk of sustaining this type of injury.
Approximately one-third of patients seen in the Banff Sport Medicine Clinic are youth. For example, the Clinic assesses approximately 1500 acute knee injuries in patients aged 5 to 24 each year.
In this 1-hour presentation, Banff Sport Medicine 2020/2021 Orthopaedic Fellow, Dr Meaghan Marien, discusses two common knee injuries that occur in the youth athlete: anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and patellar instability (PI).
Viewers will learn common mechanisms of injury, treatment, diagnosis and rehabilitation.
