When we start new journey in world of sports, we often dream about big goals. But we should always know that those big goals are possible to accomplish only with patience and years of training. Let's add to our strength and stamina less than a one percent of growth per day. Our body will adapt better, and we will end up stronger with time and with more energy for further goals. Same goes to strengthening our knees. If we will avoid dangerous activities and bad preparation then we are bound for success. Strong muscles around knee give better stabilization and knee injury will occur less likely.



Anterior cruciate ligament knee injury in fighting sports can occur if one of the fighters is kicked to knee. In sports like football knee injury can occur if football player will miss ball and will hit ground. In rugby sometimes catching other player by leg in wrong moment can cause some serious injury. ACL problem can also start if we incorrectly step down from stairs. Maybe someone from friends on the beach when we lie down will try to lie on our legs and this will cause injury. Of course all those examples are a bit extreme but this kind of damage does not often occur in normal day to day life.
