Relative energy deficiency (RED-S): recognition & management

The term “female athlete triad” has been used for several decades to describe an association between disordered eating, an irregular menstrual cycle and impaired bone health. While disordered eating and low energy availability clearly has an effect on a woman’s menstrual cycle and bone health, almost every system in the body can also be involved. It can affect metabolic rate, immunity and protein synthesis as well as cardiovascular and psychological health.

Anterior cruciate ligament injuries

The knee is one of the most common locations for injury in athletes. In most ‘football’ codes knee injuries are second only to injuries involving the thigh (hamstring and quadriceps strains and contusions).

While anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries represent less than 1% of all athletic injuries, their impact on a player’s career is very significant.  As a result, these injuries are well known and widely publicised.
