NEW STUDY REVEALED THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TESTOSTERONE AND ACL HEALTH IN MEN “Testosterone May Increase Rat Anterior Cruciate Ligament Strength” A new study from John Hopkins Medicine (W.A Romani, S.M. Belkoff, J.H. Elisseeff), July 2016 A group of scientists from John Hopkins Medicine has discovered the potential effects of testosterone to the health and strength of the anterior cruciate ligament or ACL in men. This study, conducted in mice revealed that circulating testosterone could be responsible for ACL strength and could be the reason why women are four to six times more vulnerable to ACL tears or ruptures. A group of normal mice with normal circulating testosterone and another group with castrated mice were observed. The ACLs of the mice were subjected to load-to-failure and ultimate stress tests and researchers discovered that the group with normal circulating testosterone had higher results. ACLs of normal mice were 15% stronger compared to castrated mice indicating that the sex hormone testosterone may play a huge role in ACL strength and injury prevention. Tear or rupture of the ACL mostly happens in non-contact sports like football, soccer, basketball, skiing and soccer, lacrosse and volleyball where fast movements and quick changes in movement are common. Exercise and ACL strength training will be able to prevent ACL injuries. \
