Abstract

Objective: The main objective of the study was to investigate postural control impairment in athletes with history of ankle injury by using Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) and to compare with the controls. Patients and Methods: This is a case-control study that compared postural control among subjects with history of ankle injury with the matched controls. A total of sixty subjects (n=60) were recruited from the department of physical education and sports science from a higher learning institute. Thirty athletes who had history of ankle injury were recruited for case group and the control group had an another thirty participants who were healthy athletes with no history of ankle injury. BESS was used to measure postural control by estimating the errors committed in standing between the two group of athletes. Independent sample t test was used to compare the means between two groups and the level of significance is set at level of 0.05. Results: The athletes with history of ankle injury scored more number of errors in BESS with high mean value of (15.10 ± 6.52 errors) than the control group (5.63 / 3.81 errors which was significant at p=0.01 level. Conclusion: Postural control impairment was identified among athletes with history of ankle injury when compared with control group. Clin Ter.
