DETROIT – With the Michigan high school and collegiate sports season influx due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a study by Sports Medicine researchers at Henry Ford Health System provides a new perspective on performance levels of female athletes after they return from anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and reconstructive surgery.
Multiple, high-profile NFL players have sustained ACL injuries since the season kicked-off just three weeks ago, including New York Giants’ running back Saquon Barkley, San Francisco 49ers’ defensive end Nick Bosa, and most recently, Chicago Bears’ running back Tarik Cohen.…
A new study finds the use of HGH treatment in patients that have undergone ACL reconstructive surgery may prevent the loss of muscle strength and weakness.

Baylor Scott & White Health opened a new facility designed to promote the community’s health while advancing sports medicine and injury prevention across the region.
