How Nazareth football cut injuries in half

The Be Activated technique is simple to incorporate in a team sports environment – and just as simple to evaluate for results.

 

Dr. Nelson implemented his self activation program over four years with the football team (120+ players and 23 coaches) at Nazareth Academy in LaGrange Park, Illinois. He deliberately kept it simple, focusing on Zone 1 activation to improve neuromuscular sequencing.

The goal was to see if activation could reduce injuries. For the purpose of this data, “injury” was defined as any adverse physical condition preventing a team member from participation in a practice or a game.

How activation works

Self Activation helped me recover from an ankle injury, drastically increasing its stability. It helped to clear my mind and improved my focus on the court. Following my activation sessions, I have found that my play quality has increased dramatically. I have experienced a much higher quality of life, both on and off the court, thanks to daily Self Activation.
