Did you know?
Serious knee injuries are sidelining athletes at an alarming rate, with over 100,000 anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occurring in the United States each year. Most of these injuries are non-contact injuries occurring in sports such as soccer, basketball and volleyball that involve pivoting, cutting or jumping, and female athletes are five times more likely to sustain an ACL injury compared to their male counterparts.
In an effort to combat the increasing number of ACL injuries, Fremont Therapy offers the Sportsmetrics program. This program is designed to educate athletes on proper jumping and cutting mechanics and to build strength to prevent knee injuries. It has been proven to help athletes:
Sportsmetrics™ is NOT just another plyometric training program. The program is designed and structured to progress the athlete from technique development to performance enhancement.
Sportsmetrics™ classes meet three times per week for six weeks under the supervision of a trained therapy staff member. Each session incorporates a dynamic warm-up, plyometric training, strength training and flexibility. Video analysis of an athlete’s jumping mechanics is performed at the beginning and end of the six-week session to mark progress and to help the athlete better visualize their performance.
Since receiving the Excellence in Research award from the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, Sportsmetrics™ and Cincinnati SportsMedicine have been featured in the New York Times, on ESPN, Wide World of Sports, and Good Morning America.
