Description

Female athletes are at greater risk for certain injuries and conditions than are their male counterparts due to unique anatomic, physiologic, and psychological factors. Injury to the female high school student athlete may significantly impact her physical and mental well-being, disrupt the athlete’s family life with medical appointments, and affect her team’s success. Athletic trainers and therapists (ATs) should consider these injury risk factors when developing injury prevention programs for female student athletes.
