Abstract

Objective: The article presents a focused review of the literature surrounding training methods for addressing the proprioceptive loss and subsequent balance problems that result from inversion ankle sprains. Data Sources: The authors searched the MEDLINE and CINAHL databases for the period 1985 through December 2001 using the key words ankle, ankle sprain, and rehabilitation. Study Selection: Any study investigating a rehabilitation or prevention program for the proprioceptive or balance aspects of ankle instability was included. Data Synthesis: Key components of the training regimen used in each study are described, and major findings are summarized. Conclusions: Based on the literature reviewed, there is evidence to suggest that training programs for individuals with ankle instability that include ankle-disk or wobble-board activities help improve single-leg-stance balance and might decrease the likelihood of future sprains.
