Teams and single athletes/patients are the main focus for Sports Rehab. We want them to live a healthy and active sport-life. That’s one of the reasons why we plan and design injury risk reduction programs as baseline for them.
Injuries can be debilitating, costly for the teams/athletes/society, and negatively impact athletes’ ability to return to the practiced and beloved sport.
The Sports Rehab mission is to share and develop evidence-based programs such as exercise-based injury prevention programs for athletes in every field/sports. We always pay attention to the cost-effectiveness, dosage, and efficacy of these programs, tailoring them on the practiced sports and physical/mental superimposed demand.
That’s why we are a Certified Sportsmetrics Site.
Sportsmetrics™ is the first and largest ACL injury prevention program SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN to decrease serious knee ligament injuries in female athletes.
The ACL is crucial in providing stability to the knee during sporting activities such as running, jumping, cutting and pivoting. An ACL tear will result in loss of a full season, school time, and possibly a scholarship or entire sporting career. Female athletes are 4-8 times at risk of an ACL injury compared to male athletes.
Developed by Dr. Frank Noyes and a team of athletic trainers, physical therapists and researchers, Sportsmetrics™ consists in an articulated plan of tests and injury prevention programs used to teach the athlete to preposition the entire body safely when jumping-landing. Video analysis of knee control is used, pre and post, to assess progress and to objectify outcomes and results.
It is planned and generated during the pre-season phase and carried on throughout the regular season. The preventions/training programs incorporate multiple components, such as proximal control exercises, a combination of strength and plyometric exercises in order to obtain a performance enhancement.
This program demonstrated to reduce medical costs and procedures.
