Anterior Cruciate Ligament With an ever increasing number of people becoming involved with athletic activities, there is an increasing number of injuries occurring which can be devastating for the individual. Most of the injuries that affect athletes occur in one of four structures in the human body: bones, muscles, tendons, or ligaments. Because ligaments attach bone to bone and play a major part in providing stability for joints, the major stabilizing ligament in the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), assists in performing everyday actions of the human body including sitting, standing, walking, running, dancing, and participating in other sports. The injury that specifically affects this ligament is very serious and always

My clinical rotation for the fall semester of my junior year is with the King’s College Men’s soccer team. As an athletic training student, I hold a lot of responsibilities regarding the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, management, and treatment of these student athletes. Most of my daily activities can be separated into three groups, the pre-practice, pre-game, during the activity, and post- practice and post-game. Along with knowing human anatomy, other important characteristics of an athletic trainer are having good communication skills, learning how to properly document medical information, and always be keeping up-to- date with medical portals such as pyramed.
I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation to give my highest recommendation for Richard Nguyen for the position of a Research Associate at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Richard has demonstrated exceptional leadership within the organization, and continues to amaze me with his accomplishments.
With the dramatic growth in youth sports participation and the subsequent increase in the number of injuries we are seeing, there is a need for qualified medical care who understands the issues facing young athletes.

It is an honor to construct this letter of recommendation on behalf of Eugenia Korkor Asare. As a practicing primary care physician for many years, I have come to recognize the personal characteristics required for success as both a medical student and healthcare professional.

Background: The ankle joint is the most commonly injured part of the body for individuals who participate in competitive activities, accounting for approximately 30% of all sports related injuries (Boyas, Hajj, & Bilodeau, 2013; Hootman, Dick, & Agel, 2007; Waterman, Owens, Davey, Zacchilli, & Belmont, 2010). It was estimated that in the United States alone, there are around 25,000 ankle sprains suffered each day(Olmsted, Vela, Denegar, & Hertel, 2004). A systematic review has analyzed articles published between 1977 and 2005 in 70 sports, and demonstrated that the ankle was the
It is an immense pleasure to write in support of the application of Suren Visvanathan, AAMC ID 13825842, for a position in your family medicine residency program. Suren waived his right to see this letter. I worked closely with Suren when he did a 8 week internal medicine clerkship with me.

Of the many skills incorporated in the study of Biomechanics, there is one that is the center focus to most individuals. This skill that I am referring to is known as running. This skill is where I will be focusing my attention as I express the intricate methods that correspond to running. Running is known as a natural form of human locomotion and continues to be a popular participating sport, however many develop various gait related injuries due to it. It is common for many to see running as a simple activity. However, running is a complex sport that requires attention and technique with the lower extremities such as your legs, hips, knees and ankles. Throughout this paper I will be discussing and evaluating the alternative explanations that correspond with gait related injuries. For my self personally, among many other reasons I enjoy running because on days where I am stressed from school, work or just personal events it is a way for me to escape the daily pressures of life and enjoy some fresh air while relieve some steam. Running takes work and requires some training, however it is one of the best methods on relieving stress and staying motivated. It is a great way to get exercise and you can do it anytime, anywhere without any equipment. Although running is tedious and can be exhausting it is a great way to better ones self and to help stay in shape.
