VASTA’S ACL PREVENTION PROGRAM
Knee injuries can be potentially devastating for young athletes. Hundreds of thousands of anterior cruciate (ACL) injuries occur every year. ACL injuries that occur in young athletes will keep them off the field (or court) for at least 6-9 months. Not only that, statistics show that less than half of athletes that suffer an ACL tear make it back to their previous level of competitive performance.
Fortunately studies have shown amazing results with properly designed injury prevention programs. The vast majority (70-80%) of ACL injuries occur without direct contact. A combination of selective strengthening and movement re-education training can dramatically reduce the incidence of this type of injury.
