Chronic Ankle Instability Risk Identification
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. This course will not teach practical skills or lead to any clinical qualification.
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.

You’ll need to reflect on your own experiences and contribute them within the discussion forum, this is where we can learn from each other’s experiences and knowledge from all around the world! At the end of the course, when you have completed all of the required elements, you will be able to download a certificate of completion and 1.2 Physioplus points will be added to your personalised learning dashboard.
Types of activitiesReading Physiopedia pages, journal articles, book chapters. Watching videos. Attempting quizzes. Participating in an international discussion forum.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
- compare the two subgroups of chronic ankle instability
- explain chronic ankle instability in terms of the development and associated sensorimotor deficits
- describe the 3 criteria in predicting chronic ankle instability
- discuss the four pillars of preventing chronic ankle instability
