Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the effect of ankle functional ability between the athletes with chronic ankle instability in the intervention group and the control group [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the effect of active joint position sense, single limb balance, SF-36 and re-injury rate [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Parameters

    1. active joint position sense in ankle plantarflexion 30 degree and ankle inversion 15 degree
    2. single limb balance in standard deviation and Range
    3. SF-36 in 8 Items of questionnairs
