Knee Injury Prevention for Soccer Players
Anyone who has played the sport for any length of time, knows that knee injuries are a common plight for soccer players. To help combat this, many research studies have taken place over the years to develop ways to curtail and prevent these types of injuries. One of the most common issues soccer players' face are tears to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Largely non-contact in nature, athletes are most likely to tear their ACL while turning, cutting or landing awkwardly.
The Osteoarthritis Action Alliance has elaborated on this topic and outlined injury prevention programs specifically designed for soccer players. One of the most popular, is the FIFA 11+ exercise program, which is supported by Orthopedic ONE and may of the soccer teams we serve.
If you are experiencing knee pain, Orthopedic ONE Athletic Trainers and Sports Physical Therapists can perform movement screenings and video analysis, as well as strength and flexibility testing to help determine your personal risk factors and provide individualized tips and strategies to keeping your knees healthy.
