ACL Prevention Program

University of Southern California’s Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy and the Competitive Athlete Training Zone spent over 10 years researching movement patterns related to lower extremity injury and the factors that contribute to their development. Specifically, in 2007 USC, CATZ and the Santa Monica Orthopedic Group (SMOG) conducted a three year study funded by the National Institutes of Health to identify gender specific movement patterns that may predispose female soccer players to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. As a part of this study they evaluated the effects of the PEP program developed by SMOG in the late 1990’s.

The program includes:
  • Education for players and coaches about injury prevention
  • Individual movement assessment
  • On-field training of exercises and drills aimed at improving skills and decreasing risk for injury
  • Structured injury prevention warm-up program
  • Written exercise descriptions
