Profile for Knee conditions: Knee problems commonly occur in young people and adults. (Source: excerpt from Questions and Answers About Knee Problems: NIAMS)

Gender Profile for Knee conditions: Studies have shown that women are two to eight times more likely than men to suffer ACL tears. However, explanations for this increased risk are speculative at the moment.

It has been suggested that women are more prone to knee injuries because of physiological reasons, such as wider hips, which place greater pressure on the inside of the knee and less leg-muscle strength. Another theory suggests that female athletes are at greater risk because of incorrect training and excessive strain on their quadriceps muscles. (Source: excerpt from Knees and Tendons: NWHIC)
