Strengthening of the evertor muscles is widely advocated as a key component of lateral ankle sprain rehabilitation, but our clinical observation of impaired invertor muscle performance among many patients suggested the need for this study of isokinetic performance deficiencies. Subjects were 30 physically active adolescents, ages 14-19 years, who had recently sustained a lateral ankle sprain or who had symptoms of chronic lateral ankle instability. Eversion/inversion testing was performed on a… CONTINUE READING
