AMWA Joins US Bone and Joint Initiative Effort

As with other health conditions, differences between males and females have been found in musculoskeletal injuries, including those seen in children and adolescents. The risks of anterior cruciate ligament injuries and consequent osteoarthritis is much higher among female, compared to male, athletes.
