OrthoArizona Hosts Annual ACL Injury Prevention Clinics
Increasing education and awareness can help kids decrease their injury rates. Especially when it comes to ACL tears, one of the most common sports injuries, especially among high school football and soccer players.
This is the philosophy that propels OrthoArizona sports medicine specialist Dr. Shelden Martin to host annual ACL Injury Prevention Clinics in partnership with Spooner Physical Therapy and the Arizona Rattlers.
During the clinic, Dr. Martin, who also happens to be head team physician for the Arizona Rattlers, leads a 30-minute presentation discussing causes, treatments, and techniques to prevent ACL injuries and students are put through a series ofexercises by the Spooner Physical Therapy team. Afterwards, the students get the chance to tour the arena and watch the Rattlers in action!
