I hear so much now about the prevalence of the dreaded ACL injury. Clearly something has changed down the years as this injury seems to have increased dramatically in its frequency; shaped skis, higher speeds, more parky stuff; I'm not sure why.
Whilst clearly accidents happen and injuries can't be eradicated, I'm just wondering if with a whole preseason to prepare there are things we could do to minimise the risk. I try to work on good functional movement but I'm not an expert and would welcome exercises that would optimally stabilise the knee in order to reduce the risk. Any ideas?
