PRINCIPLES OF SPORTS THERAPY ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT INJURY IN FOOTBALL PLAYER ANATOMY Palastanga (2006). Anterior cruciate ligament as two bands, anteromedial attaches anterioriorly on intercondylar eminence of medial plateau of tibia.posterolateral attach on medial aspect of lateral condyle of femur; intermediately twisted. Vascular supply is middle genicular artery. Ekbolm (1994). In foot ball, while side cutting, players perform hip extension and abduction , knee flexion and plantar flexion, the main muscles acting is gluteus maximums for hip extension, abductor magnus, longus for abducting the hip, hamstring as knee flexors ,triceps surae and tibialis posterior as planar flexors. In kicking the ball, movement is knee flexion to knee extension and plantar flexion to dorsiflexion, movement initialised by hamstring knee flexors, and then by quadriceps for knee extension, plantar flexors and dorsiflexors.I Bruckner(2007) In landing, the movement is hip and knee flexion, plantar flexion; the muscles acting are illiopsoas, rectus femoris, sartorious act for hip flexion, hamstrings as knee flexors, gastronemius and tibialis posterior as plantar flexors. Cynthia Norkin (2005). In side cutting and landing, medial and lateral collateral ligament act to prevent valgus/varus stress, in contact injury this ligament resists the blow on medial or lateral aspect of knee. Meniscus, act as a shock absorber of knee. MECHANISM OF ACL INJURY: EllenBecker (2000).ACL injury occurs by contact or non-contact mechanism and overuse.
