    Preventing Noncontact ACL Injuries presents the latest information regarding risk factors and prevention strategies for anterior cruciate ligament injury. The e-book covers current theories regarding loading mechanisms that may contribute to ACL injuries and the various movement screening tools that will help you identify athletes most at risk. It also explores the research investigating programs that have been successful in reducing injuries and the programs that have failed. To enhance learning, the e-book includes 64 video clips of assessments and exercises that illustrate what to look for when assessing clients as well as exercises for preventing ACL injuries.


    This e-book is also available with an online course component!
    Preventing Noncontact ACL Injuries also has an online course component that provides interactive case studies that allow you to practice identifying dysfunctional movement patterns and developing comprehensive training programs for two virtual athletes. The course thoroughly covers the numerous components that contribute to an effective program, including technique training (such as how to land from jumping or how to cut correctly), strengthening, plyometrics, and balance and agility training. Through this hands-on approach, you will learn how to draw on scientific evidence, athlete assessments, and your own clinical expertise to develop training programs for individual athletes.
