Stanford Researchers Evaluate Efficacy of Prevention Program

Stanford researchers recently investigated the effects of the F-MARC 11+ injury prevention warm-up program on changes to biomechanical risk factors for ACL injury in youth female soccer players. The team analyzed a variety of movements using motion capture technology, including cutting and jumping tasks. Their most notable finding was a reduction in peak knee valgus moment, a primary risk factor for ACL injury, during a jump landing task, suggesting the F-MARC 11+ program may be effective in improving some high-risk movement patterns in young athletes.
