4th Annual ACL Injury Prevention Clinic draws student-athletes from around Arizona

Student-athletes got a lesson in ACL injuries and how to prevent it from happening to them at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix.

They were attending the fourth annual ACL Injury Prevention Clinic put on by OrthoArizona, Spooner Physical Therapy and the Arizona Rattlers.

Dr. Shelden Martin, who is with OrthoArizona and head team physician for the Rattlers, led a 30 minute presentation discussing causes, treatments and techniques to prevent ACL injuries.

The student-athletes also got a chance to hang out on the Rattlers football field. They were put through a series of exercises by the Spooner Physical Therapy team.

Once the clinic was completed, the athletes got a chance to tour the arena and then watch the Rattlers in action.

If you’re a coach interested in bringing this ACL Injury Prevention Clinic to your school or club organization, contact Dr. Martin.
