Are you a female athlete in San Fernando or Conejo Valley area that plays a competitive rec, club, travel or school team sport that involves running, jumping, twisting or cutting?

Are you afraid that an ACL tear or other knee injury will sideline you and you will lose part or all of your season and eventually maybe even a chance at a college scholarship?

If so then you are NOT going to want to miss this ladies-only workshop. Seriously.

Athletic Physical Therapy specializes in ACL tear prevention in young female athletes. Many of our Doctors have gone though knee surgeries and we want to help young athletes stay on the field where they belong. 

Doctors at Athletic Physical Therapy are offering a knee and ACL risk assessment video analysis that research has proven to predict your specific risk.

Risk assessment scoring is based on 12 criteria that is taken from the video analysis in slow motion and helps to determine why you are at risk.  

Based on your score, we will group you into a high, medium or low risk of knee injury and will provide you with valuable information on how to avoid tearing your ACL.

Register for a $25 video risk analysis (regular price $100) that research has proven will help identify serious knee injuries. You will get a personalized video assessment and risk scorecard to see if your knees are at risk this season. 

Join our ACL video risk assessment workshop to protect your career while there is still time. 

Avoid ACL Injury

Why is the workshop so important? Your high school and college opportunities are so limited that one bad jump or cut is literally the difference between tearing your ACL or playing to your full potential.

Here are some facts about ACL tears in female athletes (1):

  • females are 9x more likely to tear their ACLs than males
  • 60% of ACL tears are non-contact
  • 55-65% of ACL tears are accompanied with a meniscus tear
  • 71-100% of ACL tears are accompanied by bone bruises.
  • About 200,000 ACL injuries and 130,000 surgeries occur annually in the US

The known risk factors for ACL tears include (2):

  • decreased knee flexion angles during landing from a jump
  • increased knee adduction and internal rotation during landing.

This causes what doctors refer to as "knee valgus" during activities such as landing, squatting and running.

Knee valgus, which is  more common in females than males, is caused by weakness in the hip extensor and abductor muscles (the glutes) and can result in leg and knee injuries such as ACL tears.

Do you want to find out if you land in a knee valgus position when you jump placing your ACL and knee at risk?

In our risk assessment video analysis, we will record you performing a jump down from a 30 cm step followed immediately by a maximum vertical jump.

Risk assessment scoring is based on 12 criteria that is taken from the video analysis in slow motion. Based on your score, we will group you into a high, medium or low risk of knee injury.
