Warm Up Programs For Minimising And Protecting You From ACL Injury [Infographic]
Recent studies have shown that ACL injury can be reduced by up to 70% with the implementation of a specific warm up program.
The PEP program (Prevent injury and Enhance Performance Program) has been shown to decrease first time ACL injuries and further ACL injuries after reconstruction. This program is a specific exercise program that replaces the traditional warm up. It consists of a warm-up, stretching, strengthening, plyometrics, and agility training.
It is encouraged that patients who have had ACL reconstruction familiarise themselves with this program to prevent further injury.
