Dates Announced for ACL Injury Prevention Camp

We see many young Central Texas athletes at our clinics for injuries caused on the playing field. Recently, it has been a growing number of female athletes with the same injury - a torn ACL.

The rise of ACL injuries among females is not uncommon. In fact, girls are 8 to 10 times more likely than boys to tear an ACL.

Prevention is key. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, specific types of physical training can reduce the risk of ACL injury by as much as 72%, especially in young women.

That's why Texas Orthopedics became a Certified Clinical Site for the nationally acclaimed Sportsmetrics program for preventing ACL injury. We'll be launching our first ACL Injury Prevention Camp this summer.
