Enhancing athleticism, reducing the likelihood of injury
Does your sport involve jumping? Are you worried about injury?
MedSport's IMpact Program will build your functional strength, coordination and agility by emphasizing the proper jumping and landing techniques for you and your sport.
Research shows that athletes who participate in jump training programs have fewer ACL injuries. Our goal is to help you enhance your athleticism while reducing your likelihood of serious injury.
MedSport's IMpact Program includes:
- Pre- and post-program testing of all athletes
- 6-week jump training progression followed by 2 weeks of sport-specific and agility exercises. Exercises are performed 3 times per week for a total of 8 weeks at our MedSport Athletic Performance Center located at Domino's Farms.
- Functional strength training/flexibility home exercise program to be completed on opposite days of jump training
Research on Female Athletes and Jump Training - Looking for Participants
Because female athletes are nearly eight times more likely to sustain an ACL injury than their male counterparts, it is extremely important for them to be involved in a jump-training program designed by knowledgeable sports medicine professionals.
We have designed MedSport's IMpact Program from the outcomes of jump-training research conducted with female athletes. We are in the process of conducting our own short- and long-term research.
There is a risk of injury with any activity you do; this includes MedSport's IMpact Program.
We cannot guarantee that upon completion of MedSport's IMpact Program you will be injury free. But we do know that past research on jump programs shows a significant decrease in injuries, specifically ACL injuries.
