The uses of external support and balance/coordination training have demonstrated to be effective interventions for the prevention of ankle sprains, especially in those who have a history of ankle sprain. The purpose of this article is to identify areas where evidence has been established to support the use of these interventions for the prevention and enhancement of outcomes of lateral ankle sprain. In addition, areas of deficiency in the evidence are discussed related to these interventions. Finally, future directions for clinicians and researchers as per the use of these interventions are discussed.
