Sportsmetrics - Reduce Knee Injury program
Holy Family Memorial offers knee injury prevention program for athletes of all ages and skill levels. Sportsmetrics™ is a scientifically proven, six-week jump-training program that incorporates proper stretching, specific plyometric exercises and resistance training. Participants focus on developing overall leg strength as well as improving balance in strength from the front to the back of the thigh.
HFM is a Certified Clinical Site for the program, which is offered through the HFM Wellness Center and HFM Sports Medicine in conjunction with the Cincinnati Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center’s nationally acclaimed Sportsmetrics™ program.
The program has been proven to enhance athletic performance; increasing vertical jump height; improving hamstring and quadricep strength, improving landing mechanics and reducing side-to-side movements at the knee.
