FLORIDA PODIATRIST, DR. BRIAN FULLEM DISCUSSES A TEST FOR PROPRIOCEPTION.  WHY DOES SPRAINING YOUR ANKLE ONCE INCREASE THE LIKELIHOOD OF A FUTURE SPRAIN?  "DEPENDING UPON THE SEVERITY, AN ANKLE SPRAIN CAN DAMAGE MUSCLES, LIGAMENTS AND PROPRIOCEPTORS (SPECIALIZED NERVES AND RECEPTORS THAT CONTROL YOUR BALANCE AND SENSE OF POSITION),"

ARE YOUR PROPRIOCEPTORS FUNCTIONING PROPERLY?  DR. BRIAN FULLEM (PODIATRIST AND 14:25 5K RUNNER) SUGGESTS, "TRY THIS:  STAND UP, BALANCE ON ONE FOOT AND CLOSE YOUR EYES.  IF YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN OR HANDS OUT TO PREVENT FALLING, THEN YOUR PROPRIOCEPTORS ARE NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY.  BALANCE TRAINING TO IMPROVE PROPRIOCETION IS USUALLY PART OF THE TREATMENT PLAN WHEN YOU SPRAIN AN ANKLE, BUT IT REALLY SHOULD BE A PART OF EVERY RUNNER'S PROGRAM."
