ACL Injury Prevention
 
One out of 50 female athletes will tear their ACL prior to graduating high school and One out of 10 will do so prior to completing their collegiate competition!
 
This means that nearly 7,000 high school females and 15,000 NCAA females will suffer a potentially season ending injury each year. The cost of each episode of ACL injury is approximately $17,000 when it is all said and done. This amounts to nearly $400 million, numerous potential lost scholarships, and let’s not forget the psychological trauma and days of school that are missed.
 
Many women experience significant degenerative changes in the knee later in life that require substantial medical interventions from chronic narcotics to anti-inflammatory utilization, cortisone injections and ultimately knee replacement surgery.
 
 
Benefits Include:
At the University of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Sports Biodynamics Laboratory, Lyneil focused his research and studies on rehab and prevention of ACL injuries. The research demonstrates these injuries are highly preventable if female athletes receive the appropriate screening and engage in a training program to address their high risk biomechanical deficits. A female is not built the same as a male and should not be trained like one. The sad part is these girls are probably not being trained at all. The female athlete may be the most overlooked, under represented and neglected segment of the population.
 
If we are able to properly identify those at risk and train all female athletes appropriately, many of these detrimental issues mentioned previously can be prevented. This training can not only help to prevent these injuries but it will also produce better athletes as well. A study conducted in 1999 at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital on a random sample(*were not previously screened or determined to be of risk which can lower these numbers even further) of 829 female soccer, volleyball, and basketball players revealed ZERO non-contact ACL injuries in the trained group and 8 non-contact ACL injuries in the untrained group. The numbers are small but the study demonstrates that training can potentially eliminate risk of injury.
Our team at Revolution Physical Therapy has made a commitment to preventing ACL injuries in our athletic youth. We are offering a comprehensive ACL injury risk assessment and prevention program to all athletes in the area.
 
Our sports residency trained physical therapist and owner started out with his sports and exercise science as a bachelor’s degree. This allowed Lyneil to develop an understanding about training and nutrition for performance while competing in college. Following obtaining his Doctorate, he went the University of Cincinnati for residency training which is renowned for its sports medicine programs and research. During the three years spent with the University of Cincinnati Bearcats and Cincinnati Bengals working as a sports physical therapist, Lyneil was exposed to the highest levels regarding sports injuries and rehabilitation as well as sports performance enhancement.
 
Female athletes
 
Lyneil was also privileged to spend time doing research with the leaders on ACL injury prevention in female athletes. Lyneil learned female athletes, especially those who participate in running, cutting and jumping sports, tear their ACL’s up to 10 times more frequently than their male counterparts. These injuries are non-contact in females and the research has determined the cause to be poor biomechanics (i.e. strength, balance, coordination, and dynamic postural control).
