BACKGROUND Impaired muscle activation may predispose subjects to develop chronic ankle instability. It has been suggested that impairments are found not only in structures around the injured ankle but also around the more proximal joint complexes. HYPOTHESIS Subjects with chronic ankle instability were expected to show later onset times for lower limb and trunk muscle activation when compared with control subjects. They were expected to show less variability in muscle activation patterns… CONTINUE READING
