Through his volunteer work with local scholastic sports teams, Sean Simonds DPT, OCS noticed repetitive examples of major mechanical dysfunction in the movement of the athletes. These problems predisposed the athletes to injury. Knowing that prevention programs are often successful in preventing such injuries, Dr. Simonds set out to help correct the problem. Focusing first on the all-too-common ACL injuries (particularly in female athletes), Dr. Simonds has written a book on the identification of athletes at risk, and has designed his own prevention program. Dr. Simonds offers free assessment of ACL injury risk, and other athletic mechanical disorders, for local athletes by appointment.
