How does ACL Injury Prevention Work?
Brooks White, PTA, is a certified Sportsmetrics trainer. Brooks evaluates an athlete’s risk of ACL injury by recording the athlete performing different jumps and athletic movements. Using a Sportsmetrics application for the Ipad, he can show the athlete problem areas and how to improve. Each athlete will be given a printed form with pictures of the initiation and landings from their series of jumps, including explanations of why they may be at risk of an ACL injury. If an athlete is assessed to be at high risk of an ACL injury, we suggest they complete our Sportsmetrics ACL Injury Prevention Program.

Based on the results of the assessment, Brooks will develop a program specific to the athlete’s needs. The number of visits recommended will also be based upon the results of the assessment. Athletes are taught how to properly position their body while jumping and landing. The exercises are designed with neuromuscular retraining in mind. Athletes will begin by learning proper mechanics of simple jumping drills and progress to plyometric and multi-directional sport-like movements. Sound mechanics are the key to reducing injury risk.
