Brief Summary:
The goal of this study is evaluate the effect of uni-axial versus multidirectional balance training on muscle reaction time in subjects with chronic ankle instability. Muscle reaction time is measured on a trapdoor simulating an inversion sprain before and after a 6 week lasting balance training protocol.
