Abstract

Context: Injury and fatigue can affect proprioception, which plays an essential role in balance control, specifically with the ankle. Additionally, dynamic control is also important because if the ankle joint is not stable, then it is more susceptible to an ankle injury. Injuries occur because of potential biomechanical deficiencies that can be present within the lower extremity. Objective: To determine the effect of joint mobilizations on balance in the ankle joint on individuals with chronic ankle instability (CAI), recurrent ankle sprains, and no history of ankle injuries. Design: Crossover Study Design. Setting: Athletic Training clinic. Participants: ?? participants volunteered # of CAI, # of Recurrent, # of control. The participants age was (mean ± standard deviation # years). We had x # of females (height = ?? ± ?? cm, mass = ?? ± ?? kg). We had x # of males (height = ?? ± ?? cm, mass = ?? ± ?? kg). Intervention: The independent variables were the three ankle condition groups (CAI, recurrent, healthy) and time (pre-test and post-test). Participants completed 2 counterbalanced sessions each. During 1 session, joint mobilizations were applied to the tested ankle. Participants sat for 10 minutes during the second session as a control. Main Outcome measure Normalized reach distances on the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT), the accounted errors on the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) test, and data collection time (pre-test, intervention, post-test) are the dependant variables. Results: We are currently collecting data. Conclusions: We are currently collecting the data. We will have conclusions for the showcase.

Keywords: manual therapy, grade III joint mobilization, ankle sprain
