How Does CLIP-Training Prevent ACL Injuries?
Cruciate Ligament Injury Prevention Training (CLIP-Training) is a new program that assesses your ACL injury risk factors and provides scientific training methods necessary to reduce your susceptibility to this dreaded injury suffered by athletes!

This injury occurs more often in athletes who participate in high-risk sports, such as soccer, basketball, football and skiing.

No athlete wants to be sidelined with an ACL injury. Athletes and coaches commonly ask, is there anything that can be done to prevent this injury? After treating and rehabilitating over 2500 ACL surgeries, we can now state, "YES WE CAN"! Current studies on ACL prevention suggest that combined dynamic warm-ups, strengthening of "core athletic muscles", jump-landing training, in conjunction with balance and agility exercises will ultimately decrease the susceptibility of this dreaded injury.

The CLIP-Training program was developed by Andrew Einhorn, Physical Therapist & Michael Venegas, PTA. Andrew Einhorn has treated athletes for over 30 years and has rehabilitated over 2,500 ACL surgical reconstructions. In this program, the athlete starts by receiving an ACL injury risk evaluation before implementing any exercises. Once these key areas have been identified, the athlete will receive a tailored strengthening program to help reduce any potential ACL injury.
