While rehabilitation providers care about injury prevention, researchers tell us that athletes and coaches are more likely to participate in activities that can improve performance. Can we do both? Join Phil Plisky in this Sports Performance and Injury Prevention course as he covers the latest research in injury risk factors and prevention programs. This course dives into the concept of systematic injury prevention and the practical application of injury prevention systems that can also enhance sports performance. This course concludes by addressing the challenging topic of getting buy-in from your coaches and players.

This course is for physical therapists, athletic trainers, and occupational therapists.

Having a good understanding of injury risk factors is essential for implementing a high-quality group injury prevention program. This chapter examines the research of injury risk factors and the research supporting general and specific group injury prevention programs.

2. Designing Your Injury Prevention System

Researchers have found that there are some essential components that ACL injury prevention programs should have. This chapter discusses those components, which include types of exercise, frequency of exercise, and duration of the program. Additionally, Dr. Plisky explores whether we need an injury prevention program or an injury prevention system.

3. Practical Implementation of Group Injury Reduction Programs
