In the game of netball, players often move quickly and then come to a sudden stop.

how does the abrupt nature of the game relate of the knee injuries netball players frequently suffer?

thanks

IT sesms to me that abrupt stopping (the feet stop first, and then the knee ligaments stop the upper body) would put a lot of tensile forces on the ligaments binding the upper leg to the lower. Some would likely tear.
