ACL Rehabilitation

ACL Rehabilitation

Olmer Cruz, an aquatic therapist at Peak Performance in Lynbrook, NY works with athletes who have suffered ACL injuries. Olmer’s goal is to return his athletes to the playing field quickly and safely. In order to do this, Cruz utilizes both aquatic and land therapy. Combining water’s buoyancy and low impact levels in the HydroWorx 500 Series pool re-train his athletes, perfect muscle memory, advance range of motion and reduce inflammation. Using the instant feedback from the HydroWorx pool, Cruz also works to adjust an athlete’s gait as needed to prevent future injuries while focusing on change of direction and stability maintenance on the core.
