ACL Injury Prevention Through Neuromuscular
Training : Keeping Athletes on the Field and Out of the Operating Room
Want to avoid your athletes going to the
operating room with an ACL injury? Develop an effective and proven ACL injury
prevention program that incorporates the latest evidence in neuromuscular
training to keep your athletes on the playing field and out of the OR.
Discover recent trends in ACL injuries, such as why female athletes sustain more
noncontact ACL injuries than their male counterparts. With this evidence, you
will be able to apply a sports-specific training regimen immediately
for either an individual or group to prevent such an injury. And if you work
with athletes already affected by an ACL injury, return them back to their sport
with interventions in both the clinic and the field.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
• Review ACL injuries including statistics and
• Describe the functional anatomy of the knee and the female implications
• Distinguish why female athletes have an inherent risk for ACL injury from male
• Design an ACL injury prevention program
• Explain why an athlete is not ready to return to sport following ACL
reconstruction when rehabilitation consists of only clinic-based interventions
• Analyze an athlete's biomechanics for risk of ACL injury
