The need for kids to learn the basics of movement and incorporating strength training is vital, instead of relying on ankle braces, knee sleeves or isolated strength drills that do nothing to change dysfunctional movement patterns.
We believe that the best movements are ones that are performed the right way. Incorrect form and movement is the main cause of injury and chronic pain. Strength is the key. Strong, controlled movement should be the cornerstone of any training program to improve vertical and lateral power, acceleration and rotational control.
In sports such as basketball, netball, soccer and football; knee and ankle injuries are very common, as cutting and single leg landing are a massive part of the games.
The use of sleeves, knee and ankle braces will not prevent an injury. The need for a sports specific strength training program is as important as learning the fundamental skills of the game.
