AbstractIn collegiate football athletics, anterior cruciate ligament injuries have the ability to cause premature ending of a career and sustained disability. Advanced technology targeting more efficient and effective methods of recovery has provided various conductive modalities that work to decrease the pain and swelling associated with recovery, as well as improve athletes’ strength and performance. Student athletes across the country are experiencing higher instances of anterior cruciate ligament tears which may culminate from weaknesses in surrounding muscles, field material, or cleat design. Addressing these complications, furthering research, and encouraging continuing education will help student athletes, athletic trainers, and collegiate football teams to thrive without such considerable effects from ACL tears.
