ACL Injury Prevention Series
ACL Injury Prevention – Video #3
Hey guys, Dr. Shawn Rennick from Action Sports Clinic again, this is our third exercise in the ACL preventative exercise routine and in this one we are going to do hip abduction, so AB duction and you can either use a ball or use a pillow.
So what Sofia is going to do is she is going to hold the ball between her knees and here she is going to contract like that and she is going to hold that contraction for about 5 seconds and then relax it and just maintain a little bit of pressure on the ball and then rest for 5 seconds and then contract again and hold it.
What that does is that it contracts the groin muscles and helps to stabilize the hip and gives the knee more stability.
So that is exercise number three.
