ACL Injuries are SO common and a very scary realization in today’s sports. Especially for female athletes!!!
If you have a daughter that plays sports, you NEED to watch this quick 2 minute video.
Find out how to quickly and easily assess if she is at a higher risk for an ACL injury.
We use this landing assessment drill to see if our athletes know how to properly land and avoid “knee knock.”
Most ACL injuries happen when the athlete is landing from a jump or is decelerating from a cut. It happens from a strength or stability deficit.
In order to perform this:
Have the athlete stand on something 14-20″ inches tall – a couch or chair works perfectly. From there, they will hop off and land on the ground. If they’re knees cave in towards each other or they land way forward on their toes, they are potentially at a greater risk for an ACL injury.
We use this tool to identify an issues and then develop a plan to get the athlete stronger, more stabile, and more competent to drastically reduce the chance of injury.
Try it out! We have never met an athlete that didn’t need to get stronger in some capacity. We love the saying, strength is never a weakness. If you need some help getting your son or daughter stronger, let us know. We would love to help!
