Dr. Noyes’ ACL Injury Prevention Program Taught Nationwide
On April 20th and 21st, the Sportsmetrics team packed their bags and headed south to Charlotte, NC where we certified 29 health care professionals from Carolinas Rehabilitation under Carolina HealthCare System. Carolinas Rehab is one of the nations largest and most comprehensive rehab facilities. Michael Agnone, Physical Therapist and Center Manager for Carolinas Rehab came to our course in Hilton Head in 2012. He soon decided to get his entire staff certified and to implement Sportsmetrics in his clinics and community.
The course began on Saturday morning with Dr. Noyes giving his research and program background presentation via webcast. This gave the course attendees opportunities to interact and ask him questions. As we worked through the day with great conversation on injury prevention topics, we ended up outside for the hands-on jump training portion, giving the Cincinnati crew some much needed sun exposure. The Carolinas staff made for one of our largest and most enthusiastic courses to date.
We want to thank Mike and his dedicated staff for spending their entire weekend with us and committing to injury prevention and education of athletes in their communities.
