Late stage ROM deficits in ankle sprain rehabilitation

Have athletes in the end stages of rehabilitation after ankle sprain recovered their ROM?

Athletes starting on-field rehabilitation had ROM deficits in all four directions, with effect sizes ranging from trivial (for eversion) to large (for plantar flexion) in comparison with the non-injured leg.

These findings show that plantar flexion deficits should also be addressed when managing ankle sprains.

The newly-developed device for the measurement of weightbearing ankle range of motion (ROM) had clinically useful reliability.
