Study: Knee ligament injuries more common in men

Posted:

New research suggests knee ligament injuries may be more common in men. The findings are surprising because women's knees are more prone to ACL tears. 

In a study of over 56,000 people in Sweden, 60-percent of ligament tears were in men but women tended to get these injuries at a younger age.

Researchers believe other studies concentrated on people who were considered at-risk for a knee injury, while this one looked at the general population.
