Summary of "Does the single-limb stance reflect chronic ankle instability in an athlete?"

The single-limb stance with closed eyes has been widely used to evaluate chronic ankle instability as static balance; however, there was lack of consideration of whether difference in age, frequency of previous ankle sprain or physical ability influenced single-limb stance.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The region of the lower limb between the FOOT and the LEG.

Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.

Chronic progressive degeneration of the stress-bearing portion of a joint, with bizarre hypertrophic changes at the periphery. It is probably a complication of a variety of neurologic disorders, particularly TABES DORSALIS, involving loss of sensation, which leads to relaxation of supporting structures and chronic instability of the joint.
