Proprioception and Basketball

Today in class we touched on proprioception. Proprioception, or knowing where your body is in space, plays a big part in ankle injuries in basketball. Not realizing where your feet are in space, before you hit the ground, is a surefire way to sprain or break an ankle. I found a case study testing the correlation between proprioception and college basketball athletes. This experiment was conducted by doctors and is found on a government funded website.
