The current model in chronic ankle rehabilitation is based on a biopsychosocial model of function, disability, and health, integration of perception and the dynamics of skills acquisition. However, current treatment protocols for ankle sprains do not always follow this model. This course discusses the history of the rehabilitation of ankle sprains and the need for a paradigm shift. The clinician will learn how ankle pathomechanics, sensation and behaviour influence a patient’s perception and action.
