1 ACL Prevention: Programs & Results Mike Flynn, MS ATC LAT

2 Purpose To provide a simple, common sense approach to preventing ACL and lower extremity injuries.

3 Intended Result To identify the key elements to consider when developing a program. To understand the components of a prevention program. To demonstrate how to effectively implement these components into a program.

4 Injury Stats 100,000 to 462,000 ACL injuries in the US every year! 85 percent of ACL injuries, regardless of gender, are non-contact! Higher occurrence in females! ( up to 9 times more likely than males)

5 When Injuries Happen Planting & Cutting Landing Stops Pivoting Rapid Deceleration

6 Prevention Stats Bert Mandelbaum, MD, Santa Monica Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Research Foundation - PEP –Female high school soccer players 2000 season –1,041 in training group, 2 ACL injuries –1,902 in control group, 32 ACL injuries 2001 season –844 in training group, 4 ACL injuries –1,092 in control group, 35 ACL injuries

7 Prevention Stats Giuliano Cerulli, MD, Santa Maria Hospital associated with the University of Perugia in Italy –900 high-level male soccer players over three seasons 600 in training group, 10 ACL injuries 300 in control group, 70 ACL injuries

8 Prevention Stats Tim Hewett, PhD, Director of the Sports Medicine Research Institute and Human Performance Laboratory, Children’s Hospital Research Foundation in Cincinnati – Sportsmetrics, WIPP –Female athletes 366 in training group, 2 ACL injuries 463 in control group, 10 ACL injuries

9 Prevention Stats Oslo Sports Trauma Research Centre, Santa Monica Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Research Foundation, and FIFA – 11+ (2008) –1055 in the training group, 121 lower ext. injuries –837 in the control group, 143 lower ext. injuries

10 Prevention Stats Swedish Football Association – female soccer players from age 12-17 (2009) –2085 athletes in the control group –2479 athletes in the intervention group 64% reduction of ACL injury rate

11 Prevention Stats Uppsala Primary Care, Uppsala County Council – HarmoKnee (2010) –777 in training group –729 in control group 77% lower incidence of any knee injury 90% lower incidence of non-contact injury

12 Prevention Stats Chicago Public Schools – 90 Coaches (2011) –755 athletes in control group –737 athletes in intervention group 35% reduction in overuse lower extremity injuries 44% reduction in acute non-contact lower extremity injuries 34% reduction in non-contact ankle sprains All the athletes with non-contact lower extremity injuries resulting in surgery were in the control, all ACL injuries.

13 Prevention Stats FIFA - 11+ & Male Basketball Players 11-22 yrs (2012) –14 of 80 players in the FIFA 11+ group were injured –17 of 40 players in the other group had injuries

14 Prevention Stats Meta-analysis 8 Studies Analyzed –At least 10 minutes of neuromuscular training, 3 times/wk –An ACL tear risk reduction of; 52% in female athletes 85% in male athletes

15 Program Components Form Runs Dynamic Flexibility Core Strength Balance/Proprioception Agility Explosive Strength Sport-specific conditioning

23 Putting It All Together! Form Runs Basic Core Balance/Proprioception Dynamic Flexibility Agility Explosive Strength Conditioning

24 Retention Program Duration Study – UNC (2012) –140 youth soccer athletes (11 to 17) All participated in either a 3 month or a 9 month program 84 (60%) showed improved LESS scores 3 months following the completion of the programs only the extended duration group retained their improvements
