ACL and Injury Prevention NEWS

As a soccer player or parent, the worst thing to see is a player experience an injury to their ACL. Naturally, most players and parents don’t feel the need to pay attention to their bodies until an injury like this occurs. The most common thing we have found with most athlete ACL injuries over the past 30 years, is that the over whelming majority of players are not spending time to prevent the injury before it occurs. Here are some basic steps to take to prevent an ACL injury:

 

  1. Improve your balance: Soccer is game of constant movement and change of direction. Up, down, left and right. Many ACL injuries occur because of loss of balance and instability. You can practice single leg squats (body weight) and also practice jumping into the air and landing on one foot. You can practice this before and after practice for 3-5 minutes a day.

 

  1. Improving your quad and hamstring flexibility: Soccer players by enlarge focus on the strength and flexibility of the quadriceps as they see that to be their “power”.  However, maintaining a good ration between the two muscles will significantly decrease the risk of injury.

 

  1. Work in some plyometric exercises: Plyometric exercises are designed to be explosive. They can be box jumps or jumping back and forth over a cone. The goal with plyometric exercises is to increase the explosion your legs can produce while minimizing the impact. When doing these exercises focus on having a soft landing to reduce the impact to the joints.

 

  1. Increase your water intake:  Nine out of ten athletes are dehydrated during practice and competition without knowing it. Dehydration is a MAJOR cause of injury. The average player should be drinking half their body weight in ounces throughout the day. This does not include physical activity. So for example: If a player weighs 100 lbs., they should be drinking 50 oz. of water per day. If they have practice or completion that number should increase.

 

At Olympia and Jevitz Chiropractic & Physical Therapy we specialize in treating athletes of all levels including professionals. Our goal is to keep your child on the field so they can reach their potential.  As team doctors for TESC, we provide FREE injury screenings for all players and parents. All you have to do is call one of our Elmhurst locations to get scheduled within 24-36 hrs.

Olympia PT offering prescreening Concussion Baseline Test
TESC Parents and Players: 
 
TESC is proud to announce an official partnership with the Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy group.  In Elmhurst, the group has 2 clinics including Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy and Jevitz Chiropractic and Physical Therapy.
 
Combined, the Olympia group has over 40 years of experience in treating athletes including soccer players from AYSO to the professional level. The partnership with the Olympia group looks to grow our education and resources for the coaches, players and parents in the club.  In doing so, all TESC coaches have been trained and have been provided with Injury protocols to aid them in the event of any minor, major or head injury.  Olympia will also be hosting periodic seminars for coaches, players and parents on how to prevent injury, staying healthy and athletic specific nutrition so that we can focus on taking TESC and our players to the next level.  

This upcoming Fall Season TESC players U13 and above have the opportunity to take a Concussion Baseline ImPACT Test.   
 
ImPACT's Test is a computerized concussion test and takes about 25 minutes to complete.  ImPACT tests are administered by an ImPACT trained athletic trainer of Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy. Baseline tests are suggested every two years.  If a concussion is suspected, the baseline report will serve as a comparison to a repeat ImPACT test, which professionals can use to assess potential changes or damage caused by a concussion. 
 
  • Measures player symptoms
  • Measures verbal and visual memory, processing speed, and reaction time
  • Reaction time measured to a 1/100th of second
We recommend players from ages 12 and up receive the baseline test should they choose. 
 
The ImPACT tests are NO CHARGE to all Team Elmhurst Players as part of the health care partnership we have formed this season. 
 
To make an appointment to get the baseline testing done: 
1.) Call 630-833-4437
2.) Ask to schedule a Concussion Test
3.) All tests are done at Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, 
     533 S. York, St Elmhurst
4.) Allow 25 min for test

Included in the partnership is NO CHARGE Injury Assessments for any coach, player or parent.

TESC is constantly trying to grow and give our athletes the best resources possible!  We are excited about our new partnership as we hope you are as well!   Olympia is located at 533 S.
