82% Reduction in ACL Injuries with Proper Warm-up and Strengthening
Studies have shown that one of the primary causes of injury in youth sports are ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) tears with female athletes 3.5 times more likely to suffer a non-contact ACL injury. Furthermore, 70% of athletes that suffered an ACL tear indicated that they never returned to their pre-injury performance levels. By following a guided and progressive program, ACL injuries can be reduced by 82% (Ohanian, US Lacrosse Magazine, 3/14/16). At MFS we implement an active warm-up and proprioceptive training program before every one of our sports performance training sessions and have had great success in injury prevention.
