Do you know how to prevent acute knee injuries?

Overview

When working with athletes our main goal is to keep the athlete healthy, prevent injuries, treat injuries that occur and rehabilitate them as quickly and safely as possible. We also want to minimize the risk of future early knee osteoarthritis. Several studies have shown that it is possible to prevent acute knee injuries in team sports. However, there is limited knowledge about who are at increased risk for an injury. Several studies are looking for risk factors that can help us to pick out those at increased risk. In this think tank, Grethe Myklebust of the Norwegian Olympic Sports Centre will present the knowledge we have regarding screening of athletes and present what type of exercise programs can help to prevent injuries.
