Enrollment: 19
Study Start Date: November 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Single high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust manipulation towards Tibia, not affecting the dysfunctional talo-crural joint
Other: Chiropractic (HVLA) manipulation
Single high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA long axis) thrust manipulation to the talo-crural joint, once a week during a three week period
Experimental: Treatment
Single high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA long axis) thrust manipulation on dysfunctional talo-crural joint
Other: Chiropractic (HVLA) manipulation
Single high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA long axis) thrust manipulation to the talo-crural joint, once a week during a three week period

Detailed Description:

Ankle sprains is one of the most common problems in clinical practice, mostly due to loss of mobility. Factors affecting the mobility of the joints may be due to muscle tension, ligamentous or anatomical anomalies.

Research over the last years have reported a scarce of trials investigating chiropractic treatment of the ankle joint. Previous studies have focused on investigating ROM and proprioception. This study aimed to determine whether a single high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust manipulation to the talo-crural joint altered ankle function in subjects with dysfunction of the talo-crural joint.
