Clinical Scenario Lateral ankle sprains are the most commonly sustained sport-related injury. Approximately 40% of acute ankle sprain patients develop chronic ankle instability (CAI), which is characterized by residual ankle sprain symptoms, recurrent ankle sprains, and repetitive episodes of ankle

Chronic ankle instability (CAI) is a very common sequela, after ankle sprains. 1 Individuals with CAI exhibit some ankle deficits, including reduced ankle stability, 2 ankle proprioception and muscle strength, 3 range of motion, 4 , 5 and potential changes to the mechanical properties of

Chronic ankle instability (CAI) is a frequently reported residual pathology as a result of an initial ankle sprain event. 1 A prevalence study identified CAI in 23.4% of all high school and college athletes. 2 The high prevalence of CAI is caused by a multifactorial underlying mechanism and is

-oriented outcomes when developing effective screening tools. Lateral ankle sprains are among the most common musculoskeletal injuries sustained, 1 – 3 but at least 33% of individuals who have sustained a lateral ankle sprain develop chronic ankle instability (CAI). 4 The condition of CAI is defined by a history

Key Points ▸ Athletes with chronic ankle instability exhibit a variety of movement compensations. ▸ Fatigue increases movement compensations in chronic ankle instability patients. ▸ Fusionetics appears capable of detecting compensations in chronic ankle instability patients. Lateral ankle sprains

Clinical Scenario Approximately 3.1 million lateral ankle sprains (LASs) are diagnosed each year. 1 These seemingly innocuous injuries are significant as about 30% of all first-time patients with LAS develop chronic ankle instability (CAI). 2 CAI is a musculoskeletal condition characterized by
