Common knee injuries for gymnasts include ACL tears and meniscus tears as well as sprains. The risks can be minimized by proper training including an adequate warm up and stretching.

Because of the repetitive impact on the joint the cartilage that protects the bones wear down and cause severe pain and permanent damage. ligaments that attach muscles to the bones are the most frequently injured part of the knee. Once ligaments tear they take a very long time to heal.
