Knee Injury in Rugby
Knee injuries are widespread in sports, especially in rugby. The common knee injuries rugby players can face may include anterior ligament tear (ACL) injury, medial ligament tear (MCL) injury, lateral ligament tear (LCL) injury, meniscus tear, knee dislocation, and knee fracture. A sudden force that hits your knee due to a rapid change in direction, slowing down when running, or an awkward landing from a jump can cause an ACL injury. The extra weight you put on your knees and some accidental condition may result in MCL injury.
