Great video why good technique for landing is so important! – Parkour Silentio! Be Silent and Soft!

NYU Langone’s Harkness Center for Dance Injuries (HCDI) performed a study on the biomechanics of jump landing, comparing athletes and dancers to learn more about the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in both groups. From this study, HCDI has been able to identify training methods that dancers implement early on that can be useful to athletes who experience a higher rate of ACL injuries than dancers.

The Harkness Center for Dance Injuries was founded in 1989 in partnership with the Harkness Foundation for Dance and Hospital for Joint Diseases in response to the New York dance community’s critical need for specialized and affordable health care.

The Harkness Center for Dance Injuries and NYU Langone’s Hospital for Joint Diseases are committed to offering a variety of affordable healthcare options, from free preventive screenings to subsidized and sliding fee-scale injury management systems.
