Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Group 1
An elastic tape that will be placed on subject's ankles to determine whether ankle proprioception is improved
Other: KinesioTape
An elastic tape that will be placed on subject's ankles to determine whether ankle proprioception is improved

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.
