Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears occur in tens of thousands of athletes every year. It commonly occurs in sports involving cutting and jumping, including lacrosse. This type of injury is typically non-contact, when the athlete is twisting, decelerating or jumping. OSU Sports Medicine’s P4 ACLTM Preventive Sports Medicine Program can help limit these injuries and keep athletes healthy and on the playing field.
The P4 ACLTM Preventive Sports Medicine Program uses evidence-based training techniques to work on jumping mechanics and proprioception as well as strength, speed and agility training to target and address each athlete’s deficiencies. Our program was developed based on extensive research that identified certain movement patterns associated with ACL injury risk.
