  • RISE IN LOWER EXTREMITY INJURIES DUE TO NEW CONCUSSION PREVENTION INJURIES IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL

 

THE AMERICAN ORTHOPAEDIC SOCIETY FOR SPORTS MEDICINE HAS FOUND THAT THERE HAS BEEN A RISE IN LOWER EXTREMITY INJURIES AS A RESULT OF NEW CONCUSSION PREVENTION RULES.

NEW RULES BY THE NCAA (NATIONAL COLLEGE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION) REGARDING TACKLING RULE CHANGES THAT PENALIZE HEAD TO HEAD CONTACT, AND ENCOURAGE TACKLING OF THE LOWER EXTREMITY HAVE HAD SOME PROVEN IMPACTS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL. HOWEVER, ACCORDING TO RESEARCHERS AN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE OF THESE RULE CHANGES MAY BE HIGHER RATES OF KNEE, ANKLE AND THIGH INJURIES.
