The Effect of Balance Training in People With Functional Ankle Instability (FAI)

2014-07-23 21:08:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Ankle sprain is the most occurring sport related injury. In addition, 40% of the people who sustain such an injury display residual symptoms under the general denominator functional ankle instability (FAI). In literature, there is already given a lot of attention to extrinsic and intrinsic risk factors of FAI. Furthermore, there is a major focus on the possible interventions which may be able to reduce the chance of developing chronic instability. At this moment there is a lack of unequivocality.

In this study the investigators address the question of what is the effect of a balance training programme on the movement strategy. Therefore kinematics, kinetics, plantar pressure measurements and muscle activity are taken in consideration The purpose of this study is a better insight in the effect of treatment on the residual symptoms related to FAI.

Balance Training Does Not Alter Reliance on Visual Information during Static Stance in Those with Chronic Ankle Instability: A Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis.

Visual, vestibular, and somatosensory systems contribute to postural control. Chronic ankle instability (CAI) patients have been observed to have a reduced ability to dynamically shift their reliance ...

Virtual reality balance training for elderly: Similar skiing games elicit different challenges in balance training.

Virtual Reality (VR) balance training may have advantages over regular exercise training in older adults. However, results so far are conflicting potentially due to the lack of challenge imposed by th...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports biomedical research and research training on normal mechanisms as well as diseases and disorders of hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech, and language. It was established in 1988.

On the job training programs for personnel carried out within an institution or agency. It includes orientation programs.

Homeostatic control of the immune system by secretion of different cytokines by the Th1 and Th2 cells. The concentration dependent binding of the various cytokines to specific receptors determines the balance (or imbalance leading to disease).

A POSTURE in which an ideal body mass distribution is achieved. Postural balance provides the body carriage stability and conditions for normal functions in stationary position or in movement, such as sitting, standing, or walking.
