Sports participation provides many benefits to female athletes but also carries risks to health.  The newer definition of the the female athlete triad consists of menstrual dysfunction, low BMD and decreased energy availability; treatment hinges on improving energy availability.  Female athletes can be at risk for low estrogen due to decreased energy availability which leads to low BMD, increased risk of stress fracture as well as increased cardiovascular risk profile.  Using a PPE screening tool will allow you to identify athletes at risk and engage them in preventive measures. Even without low energy availability, biomechanics and possible estrogen effects on ligaments make female athletes at higher risk for ACL tears and patellofemoral conditions. ACL tears and patellofemoral syndrome can be prevented through biomechanics training
