Power 30 ACL Injury Prevention

Power 30 – ACL Injury Prevention and Strengthening Program

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries are one of the most common knee joint injuries in athletes, with 250,000 occurring annually in the U.S.

They occur in females much more frequently than in males who are playing the same landing and cutting sports.

This prevention program consists of a warm-‐up, stretching, strengthening, plyometrics, and sport specific agilities to address potential deficits in the strength and coordination of the stabilizing muscles around the knee joint. The end goal is to optimize muscle balance and improve the athlete’s biomechanics, particularly with jumping and cutting type movements that typically stress the ACL.

Programs, like this one, can reduce the risk of ACL injury from approximately 25 to 80 percent in female athletes in sports such as soccer, basketball and volleyball.
