New Ideas for Preventing Sport Related Ankle Inversion Sprains
Symposium Chair: Daniel Fong
Background & Relevance: Ankle sprain is very common in sports. Multiple ankle sprains may lead to chronicankleinstability,therefore,besidesworkingonthetreatmentandrehabilitationmodalitiesafterankle spraininjury,itisalsoworthtoworkoninjurypreventiontopreventtheoccurrenceofanklespraininjury.
Injury prevention strategies can be classified into warm-up exercise, prophylactic devices, exercise intervention, proprioception training, and change of game rules. In this symposium, the speakers will present some new ideas to prevent ankle sprain injury by reducing floor friction, neuromuscular training, improving peroneal musclere action time, as well as training pre-landing muscle contraction.
