An update has been released to the consensus statement on female athlete issues. The goal of the document was to offer “an updated overview of select musculoskeletal and medical issues that are important to team physicians who are responsible for the medical care of female athletes.” The statement was developed by 6 organizations: American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American College of Sports Medicine, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine. The document covers ACL injuries, patellofemoral pain, shoulder injury, bone stress injuries, concussion, low bone mass and osteoporosis, energy availability and disordered eating/eating disorders, menstrual dysfunction, female athlete triad, and pregnancy and contraception.
