Abstract

ACL injuries occur 200,000 times annually and in most cases the injury is obtained through sports. Many of these injuries can be prevented with knowledge of how to correctly land without damaging the muscle. This study will test female dancers compared to female non-dancers to see the angle their knees bend using Hudl video analysis technology to observe if there is an association. If the study is successful, video analysis of the angle of displacement of Dancers will be less severe than non-dancers will when asked to jump off of a 25 cm platform and land on one foot and perform a cutting motion between a 85 cm gap. /
