ACL Screening/PEP Injury Prevention Program
St. Mary's Academy student-athletes participating in soccer, volleyball, basketball, skiing, lacrosse and tennis are offered the opportunity to work with the dynamic duo of West Portland Physical Therapy (WPPT) and OHSU Sports Medicine physicians to keep them on the court, pitch and on the slopes. SMA student-athletes are assessed and subsequently trained in the ACL injury prevention program known as the PEP warm-up.
With the higher incidence of ACL injuries occurring in women, this tremendous training tool provided by WPPT & OHSU under the direction of Kathi McCoy, PT and Dr. Melissa Novak has been a tremendous resource for the Blues. The players have clearly benefitted from the program on several levels including a reduction in lower extremity injuries, improved fitness and exposure to careers in sports medicine. St. Mary’s Athletic Department thanks our community partners for supporting our student-athletes and teams!!
