With ACL Risk on the Rise,
ACL injuries are on the rise in youth athletics, especially in female athletes 13-17 who have seen a 59% increase in ACL repair surgeries over the last 14 years. Even more worrisome, 10% or more of those athletes will go on to experience a reinjury, and 50% will experience trauma induced arthritis later on in their life.
Working with the athlete’s coaches and trainers, we’ll plan to create and implement an evidence-based prevention program that they can work on leading up to, and during the season in order to minimize their risk of ACL injury. While there are plenty of risk factors that we don’t have control over, addressing the ‘modifiable’ risk factors has been shown time and time again to decrease overall ACL injuries (up to 60% reduction according to research).
“ACL Assessment and prevention programs have been shown to reduce non-contact injuries by 67%.” (Webster and Hewett 2018)
