Neuromuscular training helps to decrease ACL injury risk in athletes
A latest research presented in the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons states that the general neuromuscular training for the brilliant young athletes will help them to keep their knee joint healthy. It will help them to bend, to jump, to land and pivot the knee in a proper and better way. This strength will increase their stamina for their sport. This is altogether an effective and economical way to avoid the ACL sprains and tears. The ACL is a serious ligament that helps to stabilize the knee joint. Such injuries may lead to surgery and long-term problems.
The lead author of the study Eric F. Swart, MD, an orthopaedic resident at Columbia University Medical Center in New York explains, “Use of both preventative measures and screening tools sounds appealing, but often there are significant financial, administrative and social hurdles that have to be overcome before they can be implemented on a widespread level.”
