Event description

Description

An ACL injury is a devastating injury that comes with significant short and long-term consequences.

Time to recovery for return to sport is almost a year and even then only 60% of patients will return to sport. Only about 40% will return at the same level, and almost all will experience a noticeable drop in performance.

As many as 60% of patients will go on to develop knee arthritis creating life long pain and loss of function.

There are many factors that contribute to the risk of sustaining an ACL injury. Research has shown that a basic program addressing faulting movements and common muscle weakness can reduce the risk injury by up to 80%

Come out to The Rep Room London on Saturday June 23rd from 12-2 to learn how to reduce the risk.

The program will consist of a one-hour educational session followed by a one-hour hands on coaching session.

The educational session will cover:

- What is the ACL and who is at risk for injury

- The implications of injury and surgical repair

- What can be done to reduce your risk of injury

During the hands on coaching session we will be working though the PEP (Prevent injury and Enhance Performance) program, developed by the Santa Monica Sports Medicine Research Foundation. Participants will be coached to ensure proper execution of the movements in the program.

Taken from a research study, published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, that studied a group of division one NCAA soccer players performing the PEP program -

In the first year, ACL injuries went down 83% for girls on teams which used the PEP exercise program compared to girls on teams that did not; in the second year, the reduction in ACL injuries was 72% - American Journal Of Sport Medicine 2005

Space is limited.

The seminar will be limited to 80 attendees.

The hands on session will be limited to 14 participants. All attendees from the seminar are welcomed to observe the coaching session. To ensure effective coaching, participants will be limited.
