You Need Your Knees— published: 04-08-2014
Your knees are major weight-bearing joints and require some ongoing care to keep them functioning well, regardless of your MOS or sport activities.

We focused on the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) because this injury is quite common in the military and can put a soldier on profile for six months or even more. ACL injuries typically require surgery, so it’s an injury you want to avoid, if possible. Scientists and researchers have discovered some specific information that can be useful to decrease your risk of ACL injuries.
