Even the best off-season conditioning requires in-season attention for athletes to maintain the highest level of fitness. The Warm-up for Injury Prevention and Performance Program (WIPP) promotes power, speed and endurance with efficient techniques to keep you off the bench and in the game.
WIPP is a 10–20 minute, non-stop training program for all sports involving jumping, landing, cutting or twisting. It prepares muscle groups and joints that are frequently injured including the groin, hamstrings, lower back, hip flexor and quads.
Get a leg up on the competition when you prepare as a team. WIPP can be integrated into your athletic routine with the help of a certified Sportsmetrics Specialist or using our instructional video and manual.
As athletes continue to push the limits of their bodies and each other, injuries can occur. If you have suffered an injury or had knee surgery, we offer Return to Play. Under the supervision of a Sportsmetrics Certified Specialist, you will learn the fundamentals of Sportsmetrics in a clinical setting. Continue training at home using a 6-week video series. Return to Play compliments ACL rehab and other lower extremity therapies that include plyometrics.
An increasing number of athletes find their season or career cut short by anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries each year. Lower your risk while enhancing athletic performance with Sportsmetrics. The first and largest ACL injury prevention program, Sportsmetrics is scientifically proven to decrease serious knee ligament injuries.* Athletes build overall, balanced leg strength while perfecting jumping and landing mechanics.
Every athlete displays a unique set of risk factors for injury, but most fall into three categories:
Sportsmetrics begins with a 30-60 minute Sports Injury Test* to define these risks. Using video fed into our powerful application, a Certified Sportsmetrics Specialist evaluates performance frame by frame. They calculate and compare results against a database of over 800 athletes and use this information to refine training for each individual in the program. Post training, the test is repeated and results are compared side by side giving each athlete a record of improvement.
Soccer and basketball rise to top of the ACL injury list. That’s why we offer enhanced versions of the Sportsmetrics program that bring agility drills and anaerobic/aerobic interval cardio workouts directly to the court or field.
My experience with Dr. Brautigan and Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville was above and beyond my expectations. Before my ACL surgery, my doctor explained the procedure to my understanding, so I was as comfortable as possible with it. He worked with me in order to get me back in time for basketball seasonâ€¦I felt that my surgery and rehab had a personal approach.
