Arthritis Foundation Recommendations for ACL Injury Prevention

The Arthritis Foundation has developed a series of working groups called the Osteoarthritis Action Alliance. These groups included experts from various areas related to arthritis, including sports medicine. One of the groups was tasked to develop a set of recommendations for ACL injury prevention as individuals with ACL injury are an increased risk of developing osteoarthritis.
The following link goes to one of the informational flyers that was developed by this working group. It outlines an evidence driven set of guidelines for developing an effective ACL injury prevention program. Also, there are links to current programs that can be accessed online without any associated cost. One of the programs was developed by the UNC Sports Medicine Research Laboratory. We are very excited to have been able to be a part of this process and provide this information for the public.
