Dr. Brian Kessler, M.D. on Preventing Injuries in Young Athletes

I agree with a lot of things were said in this article. It is very important for young athletes to warm up in a very specific way to prevent anterior cruciate ligament injuries or ACL. The anterior cruciate ligament is a major knee stabilizer.

Studies have shown that there is a very specific way of training to prevent ACL injuries and that is through neuro-muscular training. Neuro-muscular training focuses on the dynamic stabilizers of the knee which are the muscles and tendons.

Training athletes with neuro-muscular training programs – how to land, jump and pivot -  has been shown to reduce the rates of ACL injuries in competitive athletes.
