The system can be reset with wobbleboard exercises. As the body has to make adjustments for the shifting weight the proprioception receptors adjust as well.
A sprained ankle often triggers many unhappy returns -- usually on the same ankle. When this happens, loss of proprioception, a word that describes your body's awareness of its position in space, is a probable culprit. The classic trip over a banana peel illustrates a lack of proprioception. Injuries impair proprioception, but the results of numerous studies indicate that wobble board training restores proprioception and prevents future injuries. Then, the next time you step on a banana peel, you sense its presence and avoid tripping over it. Ankle sprains are not the only injury that benefits from wobble board exercise. One study -- of particular importance to active gals -- points to the efficiency of wobble board workouts for preventing ACL tears, a common problem among female athletes.
Wobble board exercises aren’t overly difficult to do. The ones which we bring to you are pretty basic and you won’t have to strain yourself too much. They will help strengthen your core, and develop balance and co-ordination.
B. After one full rotation, reverse direction, doing the same exercise counterclockwise. Use the same reps progression as with the previous wobble board exercises. One rep includes both rotations.
