Grand Rounds 4.35 and Ankles

TEXT SIZE: A A A
Thank you Grand Rounds Volume 4 Number 35 for including my post Fast Fitness - Sprain Prevention and Rehab Training among the best medical posts of the week.

In a hospital, Grand Rounds is a lecture for doctors about a patient or topic. On the web, the weekly Grand Rounds is an electronic post that lists its vote for the best the best in online medical writing. Thank you Musings of a Dinosaur for hosting this week.

In Grand Rounds, Number One Dinosaur wrote that Sprain Prevention and Rehab Training tells how to strengthen the ankle. Better than strengthening, the post explains that the point is to train the positioning sensors in the receptors of your ankles. When you retrain your own muscles to know where straight position is, you can hold ankle position with stable ankles without artificial shoe supports or bracing, which weaken the supporting muscles from disuse.
