The implementation effectiveness of the 'Strengthen your ankle' smartphone application for the prevention of ankle sprains: design of a randomized controlled trial.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2014 Jan 7;15. Epub 2014 Jan 7.

Department of Public & Occupational Health, EMGO + Institute for Health and Care Research and VU University Medical Center, Van der Boechorststraat 7, 1081 BT Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Background: Ankle sprains continue to pose a significant burden to the individual athlete, as well as to society as a whole. However, despite ankle sprains being the single most common sports injury and despite an active approach by various Dutch organisations in implementing preventive measures, large-scale community uptake of these preventive measures, and thus actual prevention of ankle sprains, is lagging well behind. In an attempt to bridge this implementation gap, the Dutch Consumer Safety Institute VeiligheidNL developed a freely available interactive App ('Strenghten your ankle' translated in Dutch as: 'Versterk je enkel; available for iOS and Android) that contains - next to general advice on bracing and taping - a proven cost-effective neuromuscular program.

Role of external prophylactic support in restricting accessory ankle motion after exercise.

Foot Ankle Int 2012 Oct;33(10):862-9

ATI Physical Therapy, Newark, DE 19716, USA.

Background: To both prevent and accelerate recovery and return-to-play from ankle sprains, clinicians frequently employ the use of external prophylactic support (EPS), such as taping and bracing, to provide mechanical support to the ankle joint. While common practice clinically, research has been inconclusive in demonstrating the effectiveness of EPS in restricting accessory motion (laxity) throughout activity, as well as its efficacy in restricting laxity in patients with complaints of ankle instability, and patients with a history of ankle sprain. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of EPS type (None, Tape, Brace) on ankle laxity before and after exercise in subjects with varying degrees of previous ankle injury.

Long-term effects of sport: preventing and managing OA in the athlete.

Nat Rev Rheumatol 2012 12 31;8(12):747-52. Epub 2012 Jul 31.

Department of Physiotherapy, Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine, University of Melbourne, 200 Berkeley Street, Carlton, VIC 3053, Australia.

Sports participation is associated with an increased risk of future osteoarthritis (OA), much of which results from joint injury. No strong evidence exists that moderate sporting activity in the presence of normal joints predisposes to OA. Whether high-level participation in sport, particularly impact-type sports, is truly associated with OA is unclear owing to difficulties in differentiating the confounding effect of joint injury.

The role of footwear-independent variations in rearfoot movement on impact attenuation in heel-toe running.

Res Sports Med 2006 Apr-Jun;14(2):117-34

Department of Sport and Exercise Science, The University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Impact forces and rearfoot eversion have been linked to overuse injuries in running. Modeling approaches suggest that both factors interact in that reduced foot eversion relates to increased impact maxima and vice versa. The aim of this study was to alter rearfoot eversion by applying three different combinations of ankle taping and bracing. Read More

J Athl Train 2004 Mar;39(1):95-100

The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA.

OBJECTIVE: Taping and bracing are thought to decrease the incidence of ankle sprains; however, few investigators have addressed the effect of preventive measures on the rate of ankle sprains. Our purpose was to examine the effectiveness of ankle taping and bracing in reducing ankle sprains by applying a numbers-needed-to-treat (NNT) analysis to previously published studies. DATA SOURCES: We searched PubMed, CINAHL, SPORT Discus, and PEDro for original research from 1966 to 2002 with key words ankle taping, ankle sprains, injury incidence, prevention, ankle bracing, ankle prophylaxis, andnumbers needed to treat.

Bracing and rehabilitation--what's new.

Clin Sports Med 2004 Jan;23(1):83-95

Sports Medicine Research Laboratory, Department of Exercise Science, Virginia Commonwealth University, PO Box 842037, Richmond, VA 23284-2037, USA.

Based on the recent evidence, ankle bracing and taping do appear to have positive effects on ankle support. For example, both bracing and taping restrict inversion range of motion, with tape and stirrup-style braces providing the best support. Although exercise reduces this restriction, the range remains consistent with levels considered to be within the normal range. Read More

The influence of altered lower-extremity kinematics on patellofemoral joint dysfunction: a theoretical perspective.

J Orthop Sports Phys Ther 2003 Nov;33(11):639-46

Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Laboratory, Department of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90089-9006, USA.

Although patellofemoral pain (PFP) is recognized as being one of the most common disorders of the lower extremity, treatment guidelines and underlying rationales remain vague and controversial. The premise behind most treatment approaches is that PFP is the result of abnormal patellar tracking and/or patellar malalignment. Given as such, interventions typically focus on the joint itself and have traditionally included strengthening the vastus medialis oblique, taping, bracing, soft tissue mobilization, and patellar mobilization.

Effects of prophylactic ankle supports on pronation during gait.

Int Orthop 2002 18;26(6):381-5. Epub 2002 Sep 18.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Kobe University School of Medicine, 7-5-2 Kusunokicho, Chuo-ku, Kobe 650-0017, Japan.

We performed a gait analysis of 12 healthy subjects in order to analyse the rear foot pronation-supination angle and the shift of centre of pressure (COP) during walking. We used a video system and a force plate and examined the effects of semi-rigid Air-Stirrup brace, lace-up cloth RocketSoc brace, ankle taping and no bracing. Both the lace-up cloth brace and taping increased the maximum pronation angle during the stance phase. Read More

Effectiveness of taping and bracing in balance.

Percept Mot Skills 2002 Apr;94(2):566-74

Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.

Taping and bracing are thought to be effective methods in restricting the ankle's joint motion and assisting prevention of injuries. Research evidence suggests that taping and bracing enhance both the mechanical support and the proprioception of the ankle. However, there is little research concerning the influence of taping and bracing on sport performance. Read More
