Reuters

Researchers said it's not clear which specific exercises have the best chance of warding off ankle sprains, ligament tears and other injuries.

When it comes to their sick or injured children, parents usually comply with physicians' orders. But sometimes, parents want their kid back in the game before healing is complete.
