Let me tell you the best secret to never sprain an ankle again. When this secret is done after an ankle sprain, your ankle is unlikely to roll again and if it does, it most likely will not sustain an injury. The secret is ankle strengthening exercises. Strengthening exercises improve balance, ankle strength, and the muscles surrounding the ankle allowing it to handle balancing your weight.
