The effectiveness of external ankle support in influencing the role of a primary ankle everter during the application of an ankle inverting torque was examined by monitoring the electromyographic (EMG) output of the peroneous longus. Six male intercollegiate athletes were randomly placed in a balanced latin squares design, and were tested under three treatment conditions: (a) wrapped, (b) taped, (c) no external support. The subjects performed a backward stepdown movement. During the… CONTINUE READING
