This review of studies in the Journal of Athletic Training concluded that proprioceptive training reduced the risk of sustaining a first-time or recurrent ankle sprain.
“Proprioceptive training is a cost- and time-effective intervention that can benefit patients who have sustained a previous ankle sprain during physical activity and can subsequently reduce the risk of further complications.”
A Physical Therapist can teach you what to do and how to progress your proprioceptive training program, offering increasingly difficult challenges, while keeping your program safe for you at whatever level you currently are. But compliance is a key factor. And that means that you still have to put in the work and do the program.
The cool part is that if you do, you can reduce your risk of injury and recurrence!
