Following an ankle sprain 70% of people struggle to return to their previous level of function. In many cases this is related to their development of a condition called chronic ankle instability. This condition has significant impact on well being with approximately 85% of people diagnosed with chronic ankle instability also developing problems in the contralateral limb. Cailbhe Doherty will share his research on chronic ankle instability, then we will have a more in depth look into the development of chronic ankle instability, sensorimotor deficits linked to chronic ankle instability, risk prediction, and ways to prevent and manage it.
