When we talk about sports injury prevention, we’re talking about ways to help athletes mitigate the chance they will sustain a traumatic injury on or off the field. Although ridding the sports world of all sports injuries is a noble goal, we realize it’s unrealistic. Athletes are always at risk of injury. That’s why we’ve set our eyes on tackling the injury epidemic by creating screening services that lower your chances of sustaining a traumatic sport. Our services also work to lower an athletes risk for ACL injury or re-injuring a previously damaged ACL.
Our screening service grades various aspects of your total body’s movement patterns to pinpoint your specific risk areas. Using motion capture technology and, if needed, 3D wearable sensors, we analyze the way you move in real time and turn this data into an easily interpreted and actionable report. Our clinical physical therapists then work with you to resolve the problem. We’re able to use real-time biomechanical data that anyone can understand to help athletes, clinicians, coaches, and parents work together to prevent injuries. The key is that we provide actionable data based on your body’s unique movements. We use those data to create a customized report and care plan that you can use and share.
If you’ve already suffered an ACL injury, you have a 20 percent chance of reinjury within two years. Our level 2 diagnostic screenings give more accurate, in-depth details to let you know when you’re ready to return to play (RTP) with minimal risk of injury. EliteX 360’s program ensures you won’t be cleared until your movement patterns perform optimally.
EliteX 360 – an advocate for, and alongside, parents
As a parent, you play a critical role in advocating for your child and, by extension, for sports safety in general. Sports are extremely beneficial for a young athlete’s physical and emotional development. They learn how to handle failure, how to work as a team, and how to harness their raw physical and mental talents and turn them into success on and off the field. The further a child goes in sports, however, the easier it becomes to view them as a sort of commodity. The reality is the young athlete is someone’s daughter or son, and while the fear of sustaining an injury shouldn’t be a reason not to play sports, the right amount of prevention and diagnostics can reduce the likelihood of that happening. This is where EliteX 360 can provide the most value: using technology to keep sports safe for young athletes.
