Clinical Question: Do individuals with chronic ankle instability have diminished plantar cutaneous sensation compared to ankle sprain copers or individuals with no history of ankle sprain? Clinical Bottom Line: Patients with chronic ankle instability have diminished plantar cutaneous sensation compared to healthy controls with no history of ankle sprain and ankle sprain copers.
