Two most common injuries that occur in the knee of football players are meniscal tears and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. Diagnosis of meniscal tears determined by history and imaging studies as opposed to physical exams is considered controversial but may alleviate future issues. An ACL injury is a major injury for any individual, but it can be devastating for the National Football League (NFL) athlete. Research shows that as many as one-third of NFL athletes who suffer an ACL injury never return-to-play. Surgical decisions and new rehabilitation concepts are explored in this course to help prolong the player’s health and competitive play.


Recognize the knee anatomy, management and treatment of major ligaments
Discuss the different graft and surgical options for ACL reconstruction
Describe key rehabilitation components for ACL rehabilitation
Recognition of genetic predisposition of ACL insufficiency
