  • Other studies (3),(4) implemented various programmes incorporating a combination of the PEP program concepts and results are promising. 74%- 89% decrease in lower limb injury incidence Noncontact injuries decreased by 1/3. Re-occurence of lower limb injury was 5x more likely in the control groups. 6-8 weeks required for the Program to have neuromuscular effect Emphasis on technique: - landing softly on the forefoot engaging hip and knee flexion + avoid knee collapsing inward - Deceleration techniques
  • Slide 12
  • Consider + incorporate PEP components into training Avoid poor techniques + vulnerable positions Increase Flexibility Increase Strength Include Plyometrics Include Agilities and Proprioception Identify at risk players - Previous Incidence of Injury is the best predictor of reinjury!
