Poor balance a predictor of ankle sprains

Good balance can help exercisers avoid ankle sprains, according to a study in the Scandanavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports. Researchers evaluated the balance of 125 university students who exercised at least twice a month and had not suffered an ankle sprain in the past month. They then followed the students for a year, comparing the initial balance scores of the students who sprained their ankle with those who did not.
