Prevent-Injuries

Prevent Injuries

DME is committed to injury prevention for all athletes. In our injury prevention package, we will work with your athlete to promote safe and effective movement patterns. Your athlete will be assessed by a Certified Athletic Trainer for movement and strength imbalances as well as flexibility issues. Once identified, the athlete will be given a personal program, designed just for them to perform prior to strength and conditioning sessions, three times each week. This program also includes jump training and ACL prevention exercises.
