The goal is to determine if standard therapy including joint mobilizations of the ankle performed 3 times per week for 2 weeks will increase self-reported function and decrease pain in patients with mild lateral ankle sprains.
The purpose of this protocol is to assess the effects of grade IV anterior to posterior joint mobilization on self-reported function, dorsiflexion range of motion and talar glide on subjects suffering from lateral ankle sprain in the past 2-10 days and exhibit 5 degree dorsiflexion deficit in range of motion or a restriction in posterior glide of the talus.
