Complimentary Sports Injury Prevention Pamphlet for Women Offered by NOHC of Chicago

  • Knee injuries are just as common in non-contact sports as in contact sports, due to cutting, planting, pivoting, and changing direction

  • "These shocking statistics were in part the impetus for offering this brochure as a public service for women who participate in competitive sports," says Dr. Wolin.

    Dr. Wolin remarks that women overwork their quadriceps muscles more than men and tend to land more flat-footed as well. This compounds the problem and leads to more knee injuries for women. He advises adding more stretching, strengthening, and sport-specific workouts to an athlete's routine in order to prevent injury. Plyometrics, which are exercises designed to build explosive power, strength, and speed in the legs should be incorporated in order to help facilitate proper jumping technique.

    The prevention strategies pamphlet explains why women tend to injure themselves more often, what to do if injury does occur, and what can be done to avoid injury on the playing field. It outlines seven different unique strengthening exercises and shows how to perform them properly. All exercises can be done at home or the gym, making them quite accessible and easy to do.

    The pamphlet can be obtained by calling 773-250-1009 or ordering online at http://www.neuro-ortho.org.
