Poor dynamic postural stability predicts risk of ankle injury in ball team athletes

But exercises may not help those with CAI By Jordana Bieze Foster Poor dynamic ankle stability is predictive of injury risk in athletes, but exercises designed to improve dynamic balance may not be effective in athletes with chronic ankle instability, according to separate studies presented at the IOC conference in Monaco. Investigators from the University Medical Centre Groningen in the Netherlands assessed dynamic postural stability and drop jump-landing technique in 42 athletes (mean age, 22.2 years) who played basketball, korfball, or volleyball at an elite level and tracked knee and ankle injury rates for one year.
