ACL Injury Prevention Series 5 out of 8

How to Prevent ACL Injury – Video #5


Hey guys, Dr. Shawn Rennick from Action Sports Clinic. We are doing an exercise now looking for ACL Preventative injuries and we have Sofia positioned here and she is going to work on her hamstrings.

So what we are doing is a hamstring recruitment exercise. So she is going to bring her knee into flexion by bringing her hamstring, contracting the body side of her leg the hamstring and sliding her leg back in this direction so that it’s getting the heal and the foot are getting just below the knee, so the knee is bending just past ninety degrees.

Hamstring Recruitment…

We recommend starting off with maybe 10 repetitions, like maybe 1 set just to see how you make out with that.

As you progress, you can move to maybe 3 sets of 15 repetitions and that will help to strengthen the back side of her leg and give her more stability on her knee.
