On April 8, 2018, Penn FC held a free soccer clinic at Twin Ponds West in Mechanicsburg. As the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine provider for Penn FC, we held an Injury Prevention Discussion prior to the soccer clinic.
Dr. Ackerman discussed prevention of common injuries such as ACL injuries, concussions and over-use injuries. He also talked about the importance of hydration and good nutrition. The presentation was well received by both the parents as well as the children who participated.
Once the Injury Prevention presentation was complete and questions were answered, the children then practiced safe soccer drills with Penn FC.
