NEUROMECHANICS OF ANKLE INSTABILITY: REHABILITATION IMPLICATIONS
AbstractAnkle sprains and subsequent chronic ankle instability are common among participants of recreational and competitive athletics. While the initial ankle sprain injury is caused by disruption of one or more of the lateral ligaments, much of the residual disability that patients have is due to sensorimotor deficits. This paper will explore the links between the neurologic and biomechanical sequelae of ankle sprains and provide clinical recommendations for the rehabilitation of these injureis.
