Not All Physical Therapy Is The Same... Don't Compromise!

Your return to function is our highest priority, therefore, each treatment will be aimed at helping you meet your goals.  With your therapist, you will undergo what many patients describe as the most thorough evaluation they have ever experienced.  In treatment, your highly trained therapist will utilize a wide variety of manual therapy techniques to decrease your pain with movement and improve your muscle and joint mobility to reduce muscle spasms.  Through neuromuscular re-education and exercise, your therapist will help you to retrain your muscles to promote proper posture, efficient movement and better body mechanics that you need throughout all of your activities of daily living.  Instruction in self-management strategies will help you to maintain your functional status.  Our philosophy is that these approaches are the key in developing a comprehensive physical therapy program that helps you return to pain-free living.

ACL prevention has come along way over the last 10 years. We have had some instrumental PTs in our profession doing research and providing valuable information on how to prevent ACL injuries in female athletes. There are still many topics to explore still, however, there are several key ways to prevent injury that have been proven very successful time and time again. What have I learned over the years about ACL prevention? Here are my keys to success.

1. Keep it simple, stupid. This philosophy goes along way when dealing with athletes young through old, and it’s the number one key I’ve learned over the years. What does this mean? Well, most athletes do not have time to do 20-30 minute programs to keep them healthy. There are very few athletes that will allow this much time to do even a proper warm up. Figure out what exercises give you the most bang for your buck and give an athlete no more than 3-5 exercises to do. Compliance will improve tremendously, and so will injury stats.

2. Core and Hip stability. This is a must for any ACL prevention or post rehab program. Female athletes lack stability proximally as they mature, and will greatly benefit from stability training to the core and hips. Don’t think dynamic out of the gate. Focus on static stability first to activate the internal gluteal and core muscles.

3. Dedicate time to the basics. Spend the time and effort up front to teach proper jump landing and take off techniques. Female athletes need a lot of education and re-education on how to utilize the proper quad to hamstring ratio in jumping and landing. This is another one of my must keys to success in this population for any sport that involves acceleration or deceleration.
