The Sportsmetrics (Level I) Certification Course
Sportsmetrics Certification programs give you the opportunity to be part of the only injury prevention program that offers certification, while having access to the latest research in ACL injuries and prevention from nationally-known researcher Dr. Frank Noyes. Sportsmetrics is proven to reduce the incidence of non-contact ACL injuries, and only Sportsmetrics practitioners certified by Cincinnati Sports Medicine can offer Sportsmetrics training.
As a certified Sportsmetrics instructor, you’ll be able to use Sportsmetrics as part of the rehabilitation program in your clinic as well as offer the training to athletes in your area. At the same time, you’ll have the support of the entire Cincinnati Sports Medicine staff for Sportsmetrics training, and knee injury research.
Be the first in your area to offer Sportsmetrics as part of your rehab program, and to athletic teams to try to prevent injuries during the season. Sportsmetrics certification also offers CEU credits for the sessions.
The Sportsmetrics™ program assists in reducing the risks of serious knee injury and enhances athletic performance. The certification allows clinics and individuals to offer Sportsmetrics™, a nationally acclaimed program, to athletes in their communities.
Sportsmetrics™ can become the corner stone for community outreach by focusing oninjury prevention and athletic performance for healthy and recovering athletes. It will assist you with enhancing relationships with coaches, schools, sports clubs, and physicians.
