Abstract

Introduction: Although chronic ankle instability (CAI) is a condition characterized by
numerous ankle sprains and the recurring sensation of ankle instability, which result in
activity limitations and participation restrictions. Repetition based balance training
protocols on type of the balance exercises may improve the deficits often associated with
CAI. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of 6 weeks repetition based
balance training on movement control, balance and performance in females with CAI.
Methods: A total of 30 active female with CAI were selected for this study and randomly
divided into control and experimental groups. Before and after the 6 weeks repetition based
balance training intervention, participants were tested by completing the Mischiati test for
movement control, Y balance test for balance and the Figure-8 hop and triple- crossover hop
for performance. For statistical analysis, we conducted paired and sample t tests the data
were analyzed using software SPSS 16 P≤0.05 was considered significant.
Results: The repetition-based balance protocol group improved the movement control
(P=0.004), balance (P=0.006), figure-8 hop (P=0.001) and triple- crossover hop
(P=0.003) performance.
Conclusion: Despite some limitations, the findings clearly support the use of repetitionbased
balance training exercises to improve movement control, balance and performance in
females with CAI. Thus, future researchers should consider not only larger sample sizes but
also longer-duration training programs to ensure the presence of notable adaptations in
sensorimotor control that can.
