Brief Summary:
This study examines the effect of kinesiology tape on proprioception and postural control in subjects with sub-acute and chronic ankle sprains/strain.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Sprains and Strains Other: KinesioTape Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The a priori hypothesis of this study is that proprioception (knee repositioning error) and balance (sway velocity and center of pressure) will improve significantly after intervention (Kinesiotape) in participants with a history of acute or chronic ankle sprains/strains.
