Sure hope that he's on to something here!

This time, Dr. Mandelbaum helped her. His research found that five to 25 percent of young female athletes will re-tear their ACL’s after surgery.

Dr. Mandelbaum said, “The major factor was complex neuromuscular control. The way young girls have been programmed, hardwired to land and jump.”

Dr. Mandelbaum calls it Dynamic Valgus. The femur is internally rotated, pushing the leg out of alignment and overloading the knee, often tearing the ACL.

He’s retraining athletes to move safely, like Goodwin. In a demonstration, her leg is aligned from hip to foot, supporting and protecting her knee.

That's very good news.


Here's the program itself :
http://www.smog-ortho.com/About-Us/SMOG-Foundation/PEP-Program.aspx

the link in the middle of the page is a pdf, click that :
" Arrow Download the PEP Program "

or straight shot to the pdf, it's only 6 pages.

Here's their Professional Affiliations (quite a decent list too) :
