What is Sportsmetrics?
Sportsmetrics is a clinically proven and field validated ACL injury prevention training program designed towards the female athlete.
Why is it needed?
200,000 ACL injuries occur in US per year.
1 in 100 high school female athletes sustain a catastrophic knee injury per year. The majority are non-contact.
Females are 5x more likely to sustain an ACL injury.
ACL injuries usually are accompanied by meniscal tears, bone
bruises, and chondral fractures.
Females are at high risk to knee injury due to following factors: Less thigh muscular development, greater femoral anterversion, greater Q angle, increased flexibility/hyperextension, Genu valgum, external tibial rotation, excessive foot pronation, narrow intercondylar notch, increased joint laxity, and estrogen.
All of those factors play a role in decreasing collagen strength.
Does Sportsmetrics work?
Numerous studies show that sportsmetrics trained athletes show a significant decrease in ACL injuries. Studies also show an increase in Knee separation at pre-land, land, and take off.
What does Sportsmetrics consist of?
Sportsmetrics is designed to be performed 3 times per week for 6 weeks.
Each session is approximately 90 min to 2 hours.
5 components: Dynamic warmup, Jump Training, Speed and
Agility Training, Strength Training, and Flexiblity.
Jump Training is broken up into 3, 2 week phases.
- Phase I – Technique
- Phase II – Fundementals
- Phase III – Performance
Why choose Sportsmetrics over other programs?
Regardless of the reason for the higher incidence of knee injury in females, there is consensus on how to prevent or avoid serious knee injury: TRAINING. While there is not presently a clear understanding of the cause of noncontact ACL injuries, prevention programs designed to increase neuromuscular control, improve balance and teach avoidance strategies for at-risk situations appear to be effective in decreasing injury rates.
Sportsmetrics is one of the first, and, at this time, the only, training program scientifically proven to decrease risk for knee injury and improve performance.
