Sports Injury Prevention Screen

Prepare. Prevent. Play.

The Illinois Bone and Joint Institute recognizes that the best way to treat an injury is to prevent it before it occurs! Before jumping into another sports season, make sure your body is ready for action!

In our Sports Injury Prevention Screen, we perform a series of simple tests to identify your personal risk factors for a lower extremity injury. A Licensed Physical Therapist (PT), Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA), or Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) will identify predispositions to injury by assessing these aspects of sports performance:

  • Mobility and flexibility
  • Balance
  • Lower extremity strength
  • Power production
  • Core stability
  • Dynamic control and mechanics

You will have an opportunity to discuss prior injuries, review suggested injury prevention strategies, and ask questions. You will receive written individualized recommendations on specific actions you can take to reduce your injury risk and promote a successful and healthy season. Most of the time, the recommendations are a simple self-treatment which can be easily incorporated into warm-up programs or regular workouts, with minimal time commitment.
