How To Better Prevent Injury

Over the years I have seen all kinds of injuries that happen to athletes, from Tommy John's to knee injuries, low back issues, messed up ankles and so-on. Now keep in mind that most of our athletes are grade school wged up to college level and the type of individuals that shouldn't have these type of problems especially the very severe ones, such as ACL injuries, tommy johns etc. Not just because they are younger athletes, but also because these issues can be prevented by by a good strength and conditioning program.


There are a few things that should be addressed to ensure that this training effect takes place and just lifting weights is not enough! These qualities are: landing and , deceleration, motor-control, proper mechanics, proper conditioning and much more.

If you have been to most sports performance or so called strength and conditioning centers and most of these factors aforementioned are not even addressed during the training session or it seems even thought of. Yet, these are the issues that often lead to non-contact injuries in sport.


So before you jump, learn to land quiet and in the right position. Before you run fast learn to stop well and with proper angles. Learn to move before you load a movement. Then add it all together and focus on the goal and maintaining proper positions as well as actually being consistent with your training goal . In other words, if you want to create power, make sure you do that during your conditioning and maintain form as you do. (Otherwise you are training to breakdown.)

If you want the best for your young ones or if you are an older athlete, make sure that these needs are being addressed in the program that they (or you) are training in. Get better while staying safe and stay in the game by preventing injury as much as possible.
