Female soccer players are prone to anterior cruciate ligament injuries of the knee, but a recent study has found that a specific 15-minute warm-up significantly reduced the risk of ACL injuries. The warm-up was done twice weekly throughout the playing season and consisted of six exercises concentrating on knee control and core stability. Injuries were assessed by doctors and physical therapists.
The warm-up group saw a 64% reduction in the rate of ACL injuries as well as drops in severe knee injuries. We are proud to say that these six exercises are part of our KNEEFIT program. Ask us about how we can help your team or athlete!
