Lateral ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries incurred in recreational and competitive athletics. These injuries have a significant impact in terms of cost, athletic participation, and The Role of Ankle Bracing for Prevention of Ankle Sprain Injuries | Journal of Cited by: The effectiveness of ankle bracing in the prevention of ankle sprains has been reported to be due to two main mechanisms. The first is the restriction of ankle joint range of motion which was shown both in static and dynamic conditions,,,,,,,.Cited by: Download Citation | The Role of Ankle Bracing for Prevention of Ankle Sprain Injuries | Lateral ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries incurred in recreational and competitive athletics. Adhesive tape is often used to help athletes recover from ligament sprains of the ankle or to prevent further injury. The choice of taping technique or material is often decided by personal preference, superstition, or anecdote. More recently, the use of ankle braces has become more prevalent, but reasons for their use are similarly by:

Adhesive tape is often used to help athletes recover from ligament sprains of the ankle or to prevent further injury. The choice of taping technique or material is often decided by personal Author: Michael J Callaghan. Ankle sprains are common, are costly, and can result long-term disability. 1 –,5 Freeman et al 6 hypothesized that after a lateral ankle sprain, the afferent information generated by the mechanoreceptors in the joint and surrounding musculature is disrupted, causing functional instability. This deafferentation of the joint contributes to altered neuromuscular activity and decreased. Ankle inversions are common in both the general population and in athletes. Multiple concurrent injuries are common as a result of an ankle-inversion injury. 1 Syndesmosis injury, lateral ankle ligament tears, peroneal retinaculum or tendon injury, osteochondral lesion, or fracture may occur. Chronic pain and/or instability may result from one or more of these injuries. 2 MR imaging provides Cited by: Ankle and Foot Injuries in Dancers.

This review outlines research evidence relating to the effects of external ankle support by means of bracing and taping, on the incidence of ankle injuries, how performance is affected by support, how support may act at the joint (with respect to end range of motion, strength, resistive torque, muscle activation patterns and proprioception) to Cited by:
