I a doing a research paper for one of my nursing degree classes and need some statistics on knee injuries in women skiers. The point of the paper is to research why women skiers have so many more knee injuries than men of the same age.
One of my doctors once told me that women between the ages of 13 and 25 are 80% more likely to tear their ACL than men, especially when skiing. I have had 3 ACL tears myself, as well as numerous other knee injuries.
I just want to know if you could list how many knee surgeries (specifically ACL, MCL, LCL, meniscus, etc) you have had and the age that you were injured, also any other information you may find helpful (such as previous injury, if you were skiing when you were injured, etc), please add it!
Thanks for your time and information.
