Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

A/USING EXTERNAL ANKLE SUPPORTS during physical activity significantly reduces the likelihood of primary and secondary sprains (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, systematic review). Proprioception rehabilitation substantially decreases further injury after an ankle sprain (SOR: A, 3 randomized control trials [RCTs] and 1 prospective cohort study).
