Abstract

The present study is to examine the effect of strobe goggles during jump landing tasks on chronic ankle instability patients. Ankle sprains are a common lower extremity injury. One of the most common sequels to an acute ankle sprain is chronic ankle instability (CAI). Patients with CAI demonstrates various characteristics such as altered joint position sense of the ankle or strength of the muscles surrounding the joint. However, one of the prominent issues of having CAI is because it affects balancing abilities in patients. Furthermore, individuals with CAI tend to rely on visual information much more than a healthy individual which may cause a problem since the visual system can easily be overwhelmed with information leading to a more unstable balance. Therefore, this study by using the strobe goggles forces to reduce the amount of visual information. From the application of strobe goggles, we are wondering if there is a difference in balancing ability in healthy compared with CAI patients. Also, to identify if the strobe goggles affect the utilization of other sensory systems such as proprioception or vestibular.
