Background Ankle sprains are the most common musculoskeletal injuries that occur in athletes, and they have a profound impact on health care costs and resources. Hypothesis A balance training program can reduce the risk of ankle sprains in high school athletes. Study Design Randomized controlled clinical trial; Level of evidence, 1. Methods Seven hundred and sixty-five high school soccer and basketball players (523 girls and 242 boys) were randomly assigned to either an intervention group (27… Expand
THE EFFECT OF BRACING AND BALANCE TRAINING ON ANKLE SPRAIN INCIDENCE AMONG ATHLETES: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW WITH META-ANALYSIS.
TLDR
The findings of the current systematic review and meta-analysis support the use of bracing and balance training to reduce the incidence and relative risk of ankle sprains in athletic populations and can educate patients on wearing a brace or performing balance training exercises to decrease the risk of an ankle sprain. Expand
Efficacy of a sports specific balance training programme on the incidence of ankle sprains in basketball.
TLDR
Based on these pilot results, the use of balance training is recommended as a routine during basketball activities for the prevention of ankle sprains and proprioceptive balance training should become a part of the training routine. Expand
Prevention of Soccer-Related Ankle Injuries in Youth Amateur Players: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The incidence of ankle injuries among youth male soccer players can be reduced by implementation of a multifaceted, soccer-specific physical exercise program and coaches and players need better education regarding injury prevention strategies. Expand
Balance improvements in female high school basketball players after a 6-week neuromuscular-training program.
TLDR
The study demonstrates that a neuromuscular-training program can increase the balance and proprioceptive capabilities of female high school basketball players and that clinical balance measures are sensitive to detect these differences. Expand
Effects of Training Program wearing Balance Shoes to Reduce Knee and Lower Extremity Injuries in Junior Athletes: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The RBS program was not significantly more effective than a conventional injury prevention program in reducing the incidence of ACL injury and other acute lower extremity injuries in junior athletes. Expand
The effectiveness of balance training programs on reducing the incidence of ankle sprains in adolescent athletes.
TLDR
There has recently been an increase in the popularity of balance training programs for the prevention of knee anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, with some thought that starting these programs in younger athletes may be most beneficial, but there is the potential that these types of training programs may also be beneficial for decreasing the risk of other lower extremity injuries, including ankle sprains in the adolescent athlete.

Ankle Proprioception Training Program for Preventing Lateral Ankle Sprains in Adolescent Basketball Players: A Case Validation Study
TLDR
The proprioceptive training program was effective in reducing the number of lateral ankle sprains in the adolescent population and helped improve anterior reach distance while patients were completing the exercise program. Expand
Proprioceptive Training on Dynamic Neuromuscular Control in Fencers: A Clinical Trial.
TLDR
The proprioceptive training program was able to improve dynamic neuromuscular control in fencing athletes and helped to reduce the incidence of lower-limb injuries. Expand
Effects of a 6-week neuromuscular ankle training program on the star excursion balance test for basketball players
TLDR
To determine whether a training program, based on specific ankle exercises for basketball, causes a change in the dynamic stability of a healthy group of basketball players, using the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT). Expand

The Effect of a Proprioceptive Balance Board Training Program for the Prevention of Ankle Sprains
TLDR
Significantly fewer ankle sprains in the intervention group were found compared to the control group, and a significant reduction in ankle sprain risk was found only for players with a history of ankle sprain. Expand
The Prevention of Ankle Sprains in Sports
TLDR
It is recommended that athletes with a sprained ankle complete supervised rehabilitation before returning to practice or competition, and those athletes suffering a moderate or severe sprain should wear an appropriate orthosis for at least 6 months. Expand

TLDR
Syndesmosis sprains are more common than previously thought, and this confirms that syndesmosis Sprains are associated with prolonged disability. Expand
Interventions for preventing ankle ligament injuries.
TLDR
This review provides good evidence for the beneficial effect of ankle supports in the form of semi-rigid orthoses or air-cast braces to prevent ankle sprains during high-risk sporting activities (e.g. soccer, basketball). Expand
Prevention of injuries in young female players in European team handball. A prospective intervention study
TLDR
Using an intervention programme designed to reduce the number of injuries in young female players in European handball, with special emphasis on injuries in the lower extremities, indicated that using the intervention programme decreased the numbers of both traumatic and overuse injuries significantly. Expand
The effect of supervised rehabilitation on strength, postural sway, position sense and re‐injury risk after acute ankle ligament sprain
TLDR
Data showed that an ankle injury resulted in reduced ankle strength and postural control at 6 weeks, but that these variables had normalized at 4 months, independent of the supervised rehabilitation, and demonstrated that supervised rehabilitation may reduce the number of re‐injuries, and therefore may play a role in injury prevention.

TLDR
Technical training and proprioceptive training are effective methods of preventing ankle sprain in volleyball players who have suffered this injury four or more times during their career. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that a proper approach towards injury prevention and a comprehensive rehabilitation programme are required for Hong Kong Chinese athletes with recurrent ankle sprain. Expand

TLDR
An injury prevention program, consisting mainly of an injury awareness session, technical training (with emphasis on proper take‐off and landing technique for blocking and attacking) and a balance board training program, for players with recurrent sprains is examined. Expand
