Ankle sprains are one of the most common orthopedic injuries sustained by the general population. Nearly half of all ankle sprains occur during athletic activity as they account for nearly 17% of all high school athletic injuries and 30% of all collegiate injuries. Furthermore, between 32 and 74% of individuals with a history of ankle sprain will experience repetitive sprains, residual symptoms, and recurrent instability. The presence of these characteristics after an ankle sprain has been termed chronic ankle instability (CAI). CAI is a common condition in athletics as 30% of high school and 18% of collegiate athletes suffer from either bilateral or unilateral CAI. Individuals with CAI suffer from a multitude of mechanical, functional and psychosocial impairments that contribute to the repetitive bouts of trauma and instability. Additionally, CAI has been associated with an increased risk of ankle osteoarthritis, decreased physical activity levels, and deficits in health-related quality of life (HRQL). Therefore, there are various short- and long-term consequences associated with CAI that highlights the need for effective evidence-based interventions to manage this condition.
1. Discuss the common disease and patient-oriented impairments associated with chronic ankle instability.
2. Analyze the efficacy of the available evidence based treatment strategies to improve the common impairments associated with chronic ankle instability.
3. Discuss the incorporation of a multifaceted treatment plan to address a holistic view of impairments in those with chronic ankle instability.
TAKING THIS COURSE
This course consists of 1 lesson and a final exam.
Lesson 1: Interventions to Enhance Disease-Oriented and Patient-Oriented Impairments in Those with Chronic Ankle Instability.
The lessons consist of video and optional supplemental materials. For the final exam, participants can take a maximum of 3 attempts to achieve a passing score of 80% or higher. Participants who achieve a passing score can print out a course certificate of completion. Participants who do not pass the final exam after 3 attempts will need to re-pay for and repeat the entire course to attempt to earn credit.

Dr. Cameron Powden is an assistant professor in the Post-Professional Doctorate in Athletic Training at Indiana State University. Dr. Powden's primary research line is focused on interventions for those with chronic ankle instability. He also has a focus in the manual therapies, lower extremity interventions, prevention, and clinical practice data collection relating to outcomes. His diverse research experience has led to an assortment of research presentations at local, regional, national, and international conferences and peer-reviewed journal articles. Lastly, he serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Practice in Athletic Training and the NATA News Clinical Bottom Line column.
Dr. Matthew Hoch, PhD, LAT, ATC, Assistant Professor University of Kentucky
Dr. Matt Hoch is an Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky in the Division of Athletic Training and Sports Medicine Research Institute. He received his Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Sciences from the University of Kentucky in 2011, Masters of Science degree in Athletic Training from Ohio University in 2008, and Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training from East Stroudsburg University in 2006. His research interests involve the development of novel rehabilitation strategies to mitigate sensorimotor compromise and enhance patient-centered care following lower extremity injury to reduce the long-term consequences of these conditions over the lifespan. Dr. Hoch has also conducted a number of studies focused on lower extremity injury prevention with an emphasis on identifying clinical indicators of injury risk. Dr. Hoch is currently a co-investigator on two multi-site Department of Defense funded projects which aim to improve operational preparedness and healthcare outcomes for service members in the special operations and conventional forces.
