Balance Training?

I ran across this article in The New York Times. I haven't had ankle sprains, but I've never had very good balance. I wonder if standing on one foot might help resolve some of my lower leg problems?

I love this word.
pro·pri·o·cep·tion (prō'prē-ō-sĕp'shən)
n. The unconscious perception of movement and spatial orientation arising from stimuli within the body itself.
[Latin proprius , one's own + (RE)CEPTION.]

When I saw the Dr. about my left calf knotting up, he recommended one-footed balancing actitives. I have a bosu ball and have been using both sides of it and working on my balance. I can feel the tiny muscles around my ankles strenthening. The calf is feeling better so I think it's working. For a real challenge, try balancing w/ your eyes shut.
