, scientific guidelines on the location of the plate are scarce. On one hand, inserting a medial stiffening on only the medial aspect of forefoot region of the shoe may induce forefoot instability. 13 On the other hand, inserting plates in both medial and lateral aspects may increase lateral foot loading. 14

head perturbations has focused on flexion/extension head movements, 6 – 9 with some seated whiplash protocols investigating lateral perturbations. 10 , 11 Perturbations that cause lateral bend and rotational head motion are required to fully comprehend potential sex differences in neuromuscular

A lateral ankle sprain (LAS) is the most prevalent injury among all musculoskeletal injuries and can lead to long-term complications ( Fong, Hong, Chan, Yung, & Chan, 2007 ; Hootman, Dick, & Agel, 2007 ; Lievers & Adamic, 2015 ). A large portion of patients with LAS reported residual symptoms

, as measured by increased lateral trunk displacement during a seated perturbation task, was a strong predictor of future ACL injury 6 ; however, the precise nature of the relationship between trunk control and its effect on lower limb mechanics is poorly understood. Trunk control/stability exercises

Lateral ankle sprains are highly prevalent and costly. 1 About 40% of lateral ankle sprains result in chronic ankle instability (CAI) 2 ; a condition characterized by residual sensorimotor deficits, recurrent ankle sprains, and repetitive sensations of instability. 3 Long-term consequences, such
