Abstract
Context: Although taping has been proven effective in reducing ankle sprain events in individuals with chronic ankle insability (CAI), insight in the precise working mechanism remains limited. Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the use of taping changes ankle joint kinematics during a sagittal and frontal plane landing task in subjects with CAI. Design: Repeated measure design. Setting: Laboratory setting. Participants: 28 participants with CAI performed a forward and side jump landing task in a non-taped and taped condition. The taping procedure existed of a double ‘figure of 6’ and a medial heel lock. Main Outcome Measures: 3D ankle joint kinematics were registered. Statistical Parametric Mapping was used to assess taping effect on mean ankle joint angles and angular velocity over the landing phase. Results: For both the forward and side jump, a less plantar flexed and a less inverted position of the ankle joint was found in the preparatory phase till around touch down in the taped condition (p<0.05). Additionally, for both jump landing protocols, a decreased dorsiflexion angular velocity was found after touch down(p<0.05). During the side jump protocol, a brief period of increased inversion angular velocity was registered after touch down(p<0.05). Conclusions: Taping is capable of altering ankle joint kinematics prior to touch down, placing the ankle joint in a in a less vulnerable position at touch down.
