SportsmetricsTM is a scientifically proven, six-week jump training program that was originally developed by the Cincinnati Sports Medicine Research and Education Foundation. The SportsmetricsTM program was designed to prevent injury and enhance performance. It is the first program scientifically proven to decrease knee injuries in female athletes. The program focuses on developing overall leg strength through specialized progression of jump/plyometric drills.
Athletes learn proper techniques for jumping and landing. In addition to an increase in overall leg strength, athletes will also improve symmetry in right-to-left leg power and improve vertical jump. Neuromuscular training not only increases muscular power and jump height but also decreases impact forces at the knee. Most of our clinical staff have SportsmetricsTM certification, and they may use this knowledge to inform training.
