Return to play rates high among NCAA Division I female soccer players after ACL reconstruction

March 13, 2016

Investigators of this study found high return-to-play rates after ACL reconstruction among collegiate female soccer players, especially those with athletic scholarships and those who underwent reconstruction early in their career.

Researchers contacted sports medicine and athletic training staff from 14 institutions in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Southeastern Conference. Investigators sent each institution a spreadsheet with instructions and response choices with regard to criteria for inclusion. Requested information on female soccer players who underwent ACL reconstruction during the past 8 years included athlete, injury, surgical technique and return-to-play data.
