Non-contact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) knee injuries can be devastating to an athlete?s career, psyche and pocketbook. Over the past 25 years, high-quality research has provided more insight into the causes of these and other knee injuries enough so that many ACL prevention programs have evolved world-wide to reduce the risk to athletes. The concept of pre-habilitation has largely come to maturity in the shadows of these kinds of programs. Here, prehab will be brought back into the weight room, allowing trainers and therapists to develop athletes well before they hit the field or court, and reduce their risk of a knee injury. In light of what science has taught us about how these injuries occur, some common variations and some new considerations on exercises athletes often do will inspire you to re-configure the way you prepare athletes at all levels to compete safely.
