Abstract or Summary
  • Objectives: To evaluate postural control in individuals with functional ankle instability using static, dynamic, and clinical balance tests. Also, to examine the relationships between the performances in each of these tests. Design: Postural control was evaluated with a single leg balance test, a balance test involving movement, and the star excursion balance test. Participants: A volunteer sample of 19 subjects with functional ankle instability and 19 uninjured control subjects. Main Outcome Measures: Center of pressure sway path length was calculated for the static and dynamic balance tests. Total reach distance was measured for the star excursion balance test. Results: Subjects with functional ankle instability demonstrated a significantly greater center of pressure sway path length in both the static and dynamic balance tests. Conclusions: Functional ankle instability may be associated with reduced postural control as demonstrated by decreased performance in static and dynamic balance tests.
