Dynamic Neuromuscular Analysis (DNA) Training at Cincinnati Children's is a scientifically based program to enhance athletic performance and reduce the risk of a sports injury through a progression of plyometrics, weight training and core stability.
A major goal of DNA is to continue to educate athletes, parents, coaches and others in organized athletics to help reduce the disproportionate number of knee injuries in female athletes. (Females are four to six times more likely to suffer an anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, tear than their male counterparts.)
The certified strength and conditioning specialists in the Human Performance Laboratory offer performance enhancement training for all athletes. A wide variety of athletes have completed the performance training programs, from figure skaters to football players. All of the training takes place in the HPL and utilizes equipment including kettlebells, power squat racks, dumbbells, resistance bands, balance training tools, Swiss balls, reaction training tools and a high-speed treadmill that goes up to 25 mph on a 40 percent incline.
During the summer, our center offers team training where athletes will work in small groups. Availability is limited based on the number of teams participating each summer. The DNA team training involves a six- to 10-week program that meets two to three times a week for 90 minutes. Price depends on the number of sessions being offered each summer. Sessions may include elements such as:
Our DNA Individual program is offered year-round and is a personalized setting that is limited to no more than three athletes at a time doing high-performance training. Training is subject to availability. Contact Adam Kushner (513-636-1243) for pricing information.
This training is designed for the post-surgical or acutely injured athlete who needs transition from physical therapy to full-go sports participation. One-on-one training is administered under the direction of a physical therapist or a sports biomechanist to address the returning athlete's individual needs for a safe return to competitive play.
