Study question Does a neuromuscular warm-up programme reduce the rate of anterior cruciate ligament injury in adolescent female football players?
Summary answer The neuromuscular warm-up programme reduced the overall rate of anterior cruciate ligament injury by 64%.
What is known and what this paper adds Knee injuries are common in football regardless of the playing level, and adolescent female players are more susceptible to anterior cruciate ligament injury than their male counterparts. Almost two thirds of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in adolescent female football players can be prevented with a 15 minute neuromuscular warm-up programme.
