Ankle injuries are the most common type of injury in sport worldwide, with ankle sprains accounting for 15% of all injuries. In this paper, the most recent, significant clinical research findings related to closed chain functional testing and rehabilitation of the ankle will be summarized. Biomechanical, physiological, and neurological rationales for integrated utilization of open and closed chain rehabilitation for the ankle will be discussed.
