Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Ankle sprain is arguably one of the most common injures in sport and can lead to significant impairment characterized by functional instability of the ankle. Base of support and visual feedback are two of the most important factors influencing the standing balance. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of base of support and visual feedback on standing balance in subjects with and without ankle sprain.
