Ankle braces may be best after a sprain: study

(Reuters Health) To prevent a second sprained ankle, wearing a brace may be more effective than neuromuscular training, but neither method is foolproof, say Dutch researchers.
They found that study participants who had sprained their ankles were about half as likely to suffer a second sprain when they wore a brace, compared to those who only got neuromuscular training.
This doesn't mean people with sprained ankles should go for braces and forget about neuromuscular training, the study's senior author Dr. Evert A L M Verhagen said.
