Sportsmetrics

Sportsmetrics™ is the first and largest ACL injury prevention program SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN to decrease serious knee ligament injuries in female athletes. Developed by Dr. Frank Noyes and a team of athletic trainers, physical therapists and researchers, Sportsmetrics™ is not just another plyometric training program. Jumping drills are used to teach the athlete to preposition the entire body safely when jumping landing.

Each year, an estimated 300,000 individuals sustain a tear to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee joint. 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.

This is a 3 days a week program done for 6 weeks.  There is also a pre and post video analysis of knee control to assess progress.
