Neuromuscular training for sport-related lower-limb injury prevention
By Dr. Daniel Tik Pui Fong
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has introduced a neuromuscular training program, the 11+, which is successful in reducing lower- limb injury in soccer. Regionally in Asia-Pacific, this has been successfully implemented in Japan for 4 seasons since 2006. In this lecture, we shall present the program with videos and instruction. Our team members in the CUHK Sports Medicine team will also perform interactive demonstration with the audience. Moreover, we shall discuss with the local coaches to modify this program to fit other sports.
