Here’s her ultimate jump roping sequence . . .

Collegiate and High School females are 9-10 times more likely to suffer a non-traumatic Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury than males in similar sports. This is the result of an anatomical increased angle at the knee in women, also known as a “Q” angle. This puts more pressure on the inside of the knee which can result in ACL injuries.To minimize knee injuries, Ivyrehab has been successfully using the Sportsmetrics program to find injury risks before they occur. Sportsmetrics has been designed, studied and validated by the Cincinnati Sports Medicine Center to screen and determine the increased likelihood of non-traumatic ACL injuries. Ivyrehab therapists use video analysis to objectively evaluate each participant and utilize these findings for teaching an injury prevention exercise program and to be able to closely monitor and assess progress. The skills taught will promote the athlete to say healthy and in their game. Suggestions will be made on your exercise program, which is recommended to be done 3x weekly for 6 weeks.

In addition to the above free event, if you would like to be seen right away for an evaluation and treatment for an injury contact Ivyrehab Briarcliff at (914) 245–8807; or Ivyrehab Jefferson Valley at (914) 762–3444. You can also visit our website at www.ivyrehab.com. Ivyrehab accepts most insurance plans (which our office obtains pre-approval from your insurance carrier) and will submit your office visit treatments for payment. You will be responsible for your co-payment depending on your particular insurance policy.

With one-on-one care this permits the therapist to construct a personalized program for the individual. After all, when it comes to rehabilitation, “it’s all about the people”.
