National Athletic Trainers' Association Position Statement: Prevention of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury

National Athletic Trainers' Association Position Statement: Prevention of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury

Padua DA, DiStefano LJ, Hewett TE, Garrett WE, Marshall SW, Golden GM, Shultz SJ, Sigward SM. J Athl Train. 2018 Jan 9. doi: 10.4085/1062-6050-99-16. [Epub ahead of print]

The National Athletic Trainers’ Association has released a new position statement on the prevention of anterior cruciate ligament injury. The document focuses on multicomponent injury-prevention training programs. The recommendations fall under 5 headings: 1) effects of injury-prevention training programs on injury reduction and performance enhancement, 2) exercise selection and training intensity, 3) training volume (frequency and duration), 4) implementation of multicomponent injury-prevention training programs (program adoption and maintenance), and 5) targeting individuals for injury-prevention training programs. The document also includes a nice summary of the literature.

Note: The Journal of Athletic Training has a new twitter account: @JAT_NATA. They plan to share their latest publications and roll out new initiatives to engage scholars/clinicians.
