Abstract

In sports such as basketball the incidence of FI (recurrent sprain and feelings of “giving way” of the ankle joint) following lateral ankle sprain has been shown to exceed 70% (Yeung et al., 1994). To date no study has investigated simultaneously lower limb 3D kinematics, kinetics and ankle joint muscle activation during a jump landing technique in subjects with FI of the ankle joint.
