INTRODUCTION : An ankle sprain occurs when the strong ligaments that support the ankle stretch beyond their limits and tear. Ankle sprains are common injuries that occur among people of all ages. They range from mild to severe; depending upon how much damage there is to the ligaments. Although injuries are an aspect of all sports, there are certain injuries while volleyball players are more prone to the ankle sprains. Of all sports, the volleyball players have a relatively high incidence of ankle sprains considering the sudden stops and cutting movements. The ankle instability is very common in novice volley ball players. In athletics, the volleyball event is combination of cyclical running and the technical clearance of movements, however one of the most important elements in the determination of the final athletic result. OBJECTIVE : To evaluate the effectiveness of plyometric exercise training program to improve ankle instability among volleyball players DESIGN : Pre and post test A questionnaire experimental study PARTICIPANTS : Subject consist of 3O; 15 Suggestion undergoing plyometric exercise in control group;15 in experimental group RESULT : After the interpretation of data p-value is highly significant Cumberland ankle instability tool and visual analogue scale are measuring mean difference ankle instability of volley ball players. CONCLUSION : The study was conclude that plyometric training improve stability of volley ball players. From this study it shows that plyometric training program has proved to be effective in improving ankle sprain among volleyballplayers, although the strengthening is an important consideration during ankle sprain rehabilitation deficits of ankle strength. The approaches that involve plyometric training program improves the ankle instability for athletes and also, the plyometric training improves the neuromuscular, neuro-motor, sensory-motor system and improving a static and dynamic balance and decreases the recurrence of injury with ankle sprained subjects. Evidence are suggested more over different types of training are available, such a plyometric training is improving the ankle instability and to prevent a further injury in future. The study concludes that the plyometric training program is effective in improving ankle instability among volleyball players.
