|Chronic Ankle Instability||Diagnostic Test: CHRONIC ANKLE INSTABILITY AND ASSOCIATED FACTORS:|
Chronic ankle instability (CAI) is a common condition encountered with persistent symptoms of giving way, pain, and weakness and recurrent risk, which may lead to functional insufficiency. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of chronic ankle instability using the Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool (CAIT) and investigate the independent associated factors.
The data was collected from adult volunteers by questionnaire including sociodemographic information, general medical condition, history of orthopedic surgery, pain intensity, and the number of painful areas of the foot. 273 adult volunteers participated in the study, through face to face or online. Subjects are classified as having CAI with a CAIT score ≤27.

Diagnostic Test: CHRONIC ANKLE INSTABILITY AND ASSOCIATED FACTORS:
Questionnaire including sociodemographic information, general medical condition, history of orthopedic surgery, pain intensity, and the number of painful areas of the foot.
- chronic ankle instability [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool
(CAIT) is a 9-item questionnaire generating a score from 0 to 30 for each ankle, in which 0 is the worst possible score, meaning severe instability, and 30 is the best possible score, meaning stability. The CAIT is considered a reliable instrument to distinguish between stable and unstable ankles, meanwhile, measuring the severity of functional ankle instability.
