Lateral Ankle Sprains and Chronic Ankle Instability


In this presentation Lindsay takes the time to explain why this topic should attract our attention. The epidemiology of Lateral Ankle Sprains is fascinating. It accounts for 85% of all sports related injuries. The irony is that only 50% of these injuries seek medical attention, and yet 70% lead to Chronic Ankle Instability (CAI). 30% of these patients have pain for up to a year. The terminology of laxity and instability is explained. She educates us on how to assess CAI. Understanding which deficits these patients are likely to have, how to assess these deficits – whilst understanding the biomechanics of the ankle dorsiflexion deficit which we struggle to improve. The management of LAS and CAI is explained by addressing each of these deficits
