An investigation of the literature on the use of prophylactic ankle braces for preventing lateral ankle sprains revealed methodological flaws and frequently inappropriate extrapolation of results. Existing research is inadequate and not definitive enough to warrant confident use of particular supportive modes. It is therefore apparent that more reliable scientific functional data and empirical conclusions are necessary when researching this topic. Suggestions for further research are offered and encouraged.
