Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine ACL Injury Risk Reduction

ACL Injury Risk Reduction

Get faster. Get stronger. Protect your body from injury.

An ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury can be devastating, often requiring surgery and months of intensive rehabilitation. If your sport requires you to jump, pivot, twist, lunge or cut from side to side, then your knees are at greater risk.

More on our training and facilities…

If an injury does occur, our world-renowned surgeons, specialists and therapists are here to get you back in the game. But as experts who have trained athletes of all levels, we know there is a lot you can do to avoid injury in the first place.

Our Training Approach

Whatever your age or skill level, our team will perform a comprehensive series of strength, balance, and functional movement assessments. From there, we create an all-inclusive, personalized plan to strengthen and stabilize your body, address the specific risk factors presented by your sport, and reduce the risk of ACL injury.

Our Facilities and Technology

You’ll train in a state-of-the-art facility with 2-D video analysis, top-of-the-line exercise equipment, and a variety of training surfaces that mirror the full range of sports environments. You will also have access to a 3-D motion analysis lab that will analyze the movement mechanics of your jump and cut technique to assess your risk for injury.

And you’ll work with expert doctors and therapists skilled in the latest, research-based techniques for improving the biomechanics that will help you excel at your sport.
