Brief Summary:
The ankle joint is often affected by injuries, especially lateral sprains, often leading to chronic instability. Joint mobilization techniques seem to influence the sense of joint positioning. The objective of the study is to compare mobilization techniques in the balance of athletes with chronic ankle instability. A randomized clinical trial with participants allocated in three groups: Talocrural manipulation, mobilization with movement and placebo will be assessed in their primary endpoints and secondary balance and dorsiflexion range of motion respectively.

Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Masking Description: Opaque envelopes
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Comparison Between Two Mobilization Techniques With and Without Ankle Thrust on Balance in Patients With Chronic Ankle Instability
Actual Study Start Date : January 30, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : April 30, 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 31, 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimental MWM

Other names:

4 mobilizations - 10 seconds 20 seconds of rest

Other: Experimental MWM
Mobilization with Movement

Other: Experimental Thrust
Mobilization grade 5 (Thrust)

Other: Placebo
Procedures similar to Experimental MWM group, but without aplly any force

Active Comparator: Experimental Thrust

Other names:

1 traction with caudal direction in high speed and low amplitude increasing dorsiflexion.

Other: Experimental MWM
Mobilization with Movement

Other: Experimental Thrust
Mobilization grade 5 (Thrust)

Other: Placebo
Procedures similar to Experimental MWM group, but without aplly any force

Placebo Comparator: Placebo

Other names:

It will accurately reproduce the positioning of the hand in the specific treatment condition (Thrust or MWM), however, without applying any movement or force. All interactions, procedures and deadlines will be identical.

Other: Experimental MWM
Mobilization with Movement

Other: Experimental Thrust
Mobilization grade 5 (Thrust)

Other: Placebo
Procedures similar to Experimental MWM group, but without aplly any force




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Balance assessed with Biodex Balance System [ Time Frame: almost 10 minutes ]
    Balance assessed with Biodex Balance System (stabilometry plattaform)
