The program is designed to decrease the number of ACL injuries, particularly in middle and high school female athletes.
ACL injuries in female athletes are on the rise and studies have shown a well conducted injury prevention program can decrease the incidence of ACL injuries.
Neuromuscular training has been demonstrated to have a significant effect on the reduction of relative ACL injury risk in female athletes in high risk landing and cutting sports such a soccer, basketball, volleyball and lacrosse.
The client will be educated to a highly specific 15 minute training session that replaces a traditional warm-up. The goal of the program is to teach coaches and players strategies to avoid injuries by avoiding vulnerable positions, increasing flexibility, increasing strength, and proprioception.
