Getting back inside the envelope
This athlete is returning to softball from a sprained right knee. I didn't like the way her single leg hop looked- too much valgus. I could get that knee back into the envelope of function by removing the exercise or doing mini jumps on two feet. What I chose was to continue single leg training, but modify the same exercise. The athlete is doing the single leg hop up a 30 degree incline, with no more knee valgus. Handicap ramps typically found around schools are perfect for this purpose.
