OBJECTIVE To identify clinician and laboratory-oriented measures of function capable of explaining health-related quality of life in individuals with chronic ankle instability. DESIGN Cross-sectional. SETTING Laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Forty physically active individuals with chronic ankle instability attended a single testing session. MAIN OUTCOME(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the contributions of strength, dorsiflexion range of motion (DFROM), plantar cutaneous sensation (PCS), and static postural control to Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) performance in individuals with chronic ankle instability (CAI). Forty individuals with CAI completed isometric strength, weight-bearing DFROM,(More)
CLINICAL SCENARIO Chronic ankle instability (CAI) is a condition commonly experienced by physically active individuals. It has been suggested that foot orthotics may increase a CAI patient's postural control. CLINICAL QUESTION For patients with CAI, is there evidence to suggest that an orthotic intervention will help improve postural control? SUMMARY OF(More)
BACKGROUND Individuals with chronic ankle instability (CAI) have demonstrated alterations in ankle mechanics and deficits in sensory function. However, relationships between mechanical stability and somatosensory function have not been examined, nor have those between somatosensory function and injury history characteristics. Therefore, the objective of(More)
