CEU Course Description

The ankle is among the most frequently injured joints during athletic activity, accounting for approximately 30% of all sports related injuries.  While recovery from an ankle sprain is often rapid, appropriate management is imperative to reduce the risk of recurrent injury and the development of chronic ankle instability (CAI), which can lead to reduced physical activity due to persistent ankle pain, swelling, crepitus, stiffness, weakness, and instability, as well as the development of post-traumatic ankle osteoarthritis.  The goal of this CEU course is to identify, evaluate, and synthesize evidence relating to the effect of kinesiotape (KT) applied to the lateral aspect of the ankle, on disability outcomes relevant to lateral ankle sprains.


CEU Course Objectives

1.  Explain, compared to rigid tape, KT's impact on basketball players with CAI.

2.  Investigate the recommendations for KT to be used in clinical practice to prevent lateral ankle injuries.

3.  Describe KT's effect on ankle joint stiffness immediately following application and in the short term.
