Matt McManus Gives ACL Injury Prevention Talk at ASC


Matt McManus, PT and Regional Clinical Director at ProEx Physical Therapy, volunteered his time to Arlington Soccer Club's annual Spring meeting for coaches, which was held Thursday, April 1st at the Ottoson Middle School in Arlington. 

He presented on ACL Injury Prevention through Proprioceptive and Neuromuscular Training as part of the Prevent Injury and Enhance Performance Program (PEP). 

ProEx teamed up with ASC to roll out the successful PEP program in order to help reduce the high number of noncontact  ACL tears in young athletes by providing them with a clear, easy to follow training protocol that can be incorporated into a team practice. 

The April 1st meeting was followed by a full day of training on Saturday, April 3rd, where Matt supervised the coaches while they trained their players on these injury prevention guidelines.
