Stay off the bench and in the game!
Individualized, functional training programs are available for those at risk of an ACL injury. Learn how an ACL Prevention program can help you or your child.
One of the more common injuries we see with young athletes, most notably female athletes, is anterior knee pain, or what is also known as Runner’s Knee or Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS).
One of the most common causes of this condition is weakness in certain muscles of the hip. These particular muscles control the mechanics of the knee, and with weakness, they cause the femur to internally rotate and adduct causing the kneecap to track outside of its normal groove. This will cause much irritation and stress to this joint.
Functional weakness in these hip muscles can also lead to more serious injuries in sports, such as tearing your ACL! This devastating injury, along with other serious knee injuries, can be the result of poor knee mechanics during landing or cutting.
