Abstract

Introduction: The present paper studied three lower organ linear disorders, including tibial rotation (rotating
tibia bone around linear axis) (femoral anteversion), femoral normal rotation, and varus complications as
possible risk factors of common sports injuries of knee.
Methods: In this comparative descriptive study, 60 men were divided into three meniscal injury, anterior
cross ligament and healthy groups (n=20). All of the participants were current wrestlers at different clubs
of Kermanshah province and towns who had at least four years of experience in various sports events.
The samples of the injured groups were selected through questionnaire and referral to sports clubs and the
healthy group sample was randomly selected. The healthy individuals had no record of knee injury.
Results: The results of the present study revealed that anteversion (internal rotation of femur) affected both
common anterior cruciate ligament and meniscal impairments, and tibial rotation only significantly affected
meniscal injury not anterior cruciate ligament. Also, increase of knee varus angle did not have any effect on
meniscal and anterior cruciate ligament injuries.
Conclusion: The results of this study can be helpful to recognize the risk factors of sports injuries.
