Abstract

The single-limb sway of 20 individuals with a history of unilateral inversion ankle sprain was compared to that of a control group of 30 individuals without a history of ankle sprain. Using a force platform to obtain center-of-pressure data, the linear distance traveled (mm) and the mean power frequency, (Hz) of postural sway were calculated for each subject. The results of this study showed that postural sway amplitude was significantly greater in the injured group than in the control group. Contrary to previous investigations, this study indicates that individuals with a history of inversion ankle sprain are less stable in single-limb stance compared to a noninjured control group. This decreased stability is evident as much as 2 years following the injury.
