ACL Screening & Injury Prevention Program

Sacramento Spine & Physical Therapy has developed a program based on our extensive research that identified certain movement patterns associated with ACL injury risk. The goal of the program is to reduce the risk of an ACL injury and increase the athletes athletic potential.

Our licensed sports physical therapists, athletic trainers and certified strength and conditioning specialists work together to target and address each athlete’s deficiencies. They do this by combining renowned research, clinical expertise and evidence-based training techniques to work on jumping mechanics and proprioception (awareness of body position).

The Program covers 3 main areas:

  1. Screening utilizing the most valid, reliable and practical screening tools to identify those athletes who may be at risk for significant knee injury (ACL)
  2. Prescribe training techniques to address neuromuscular deficits in individual athletesSteps 1 & 2 are performed by a license Physical Therapist and cost 85.00 per athlete. Screening takes 1 hr. Contact Jeff at 916-677-1210 to schedule individual athlete or team.
  3. Athlete development utilizing the best training techniques, used in a group / team setting, to prevent significant knee injury (ACL) and help athletes reach their full athletic potential.

Athlete Development Program is an optional on-site monthly training program for athletes. Click here for more info.

Anterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL) occur in tens of thousands of athletes every year. ACL injuries most commonly occur in sports such as soccer, football, basketball and lacrosse. This type of injury can happen when an athlete is making quick cutting movements, decelerating or jumping. Women are four to six times more likely to tear their ACL, and current research suggests that one in four athletes who have had an ACL injury may sustain a second injury. Save & Exit

ACL injuries can result in:

  • A higher risk to develop early osteoarthritis
  • Inability to return to your sport at the same level of competition
  • Loss of playing time and possible loss of scholarship
  • Muscle weakness and significant loss of function

Who is at risk? You may be at risk for an ACL injury if you are an athlete who:

  • Demonstrates faulty jumping biomechanics
  • Is female (four to six times greater risk of ACL injury compared to males)
  • Participates in running and cutting sports, including soccer, basketball, volleyball, football or lacrosse
  • Previously had a general knee or ACL injury

Some risk factors for ACL injury cannot be changed. These include structural and hormonal factors such as wider-set hips, long thighbones and shinbones, and general laxity or “looseness” of ligaments that keep joints stable.

Modifiable risk factors, such as poor neuromuscular control, can be addressed with proper training through our program.
