Predictors of recurrent lateral ankle sprains

Which factors predict recurrent ankle sprains after a first episode?

More than half of the people who experience their first episode (index) lateral ankle sprain experience recurrent sprains.

In an effort to find the predictors of this recurrent sprain, studies have been conducted in identifying impairments after the sprains have occurred. These studies are retrospective in nature.

The purpose of this study was to identify factors using a prospective design where the participants would be tested for baseline measures and followed up over a 12-month period for lateral ankle sprain injuries.
