ACL Stretches

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament is one of a pair of ligaments in the knee and tearing them is one of the most common knee injury that happens in ANY sport, but especially Soccer and Football where you plant your foot and pivot with your knee.  The ACL is crucial for stabilizing the knee when turning or planting the leg.   An ACL injury can not alwas be prevented but your chances of one can be lessened if you stretch well before and after practices and games.    There is a new Handout (found in the Handouts section) from, Brett Siebenkittel, lead physical therapist at Allgehany Regional in Low Moor of warm-up and cool down exercises that can easily be done to help prevent ACL injury.
