Life Skill #172: How to wrap an ankle
There are two reasons to wrap an ankle. The most common is to prevent a sprain, but it can also be done post-injury for support. David Leigh has been wrapping ankles for more than 35 years, more than 100,000 ankles in all by his estimate. A professor in Marquette University's exercise science department, which is part of the school's physical therapy program, Leigh says wrapping an ankle is a manual skill that anyone can learn.
