Knee Injury in Jumping
Jumping may result in various injuries, including ACL tear, patellar or quadriceps tendon tear, cartilage tears, and jumpers’ knees. ACL tear usually results from sports activities, when your foot is firmly planted on the ground, and your knee feels a sudden force while your leg is slightly bent or straight. The causes of ACL tear may include a sudden change in the direction, slowing down from running, and landing from a jump. A direct fall or awkward landing from a jump may result in patellar or quadricep tendon tear.
