Balance training has been shown to be effective in preventing ankle sprainrecurrences in subjects with Lateral Ankle injury (LAI) but the biomechanical and/orneurophysiological pathways underlying the clinical outcomes are still unknown. This study wasconducted to determine if a 12-week balance training intervention can alter the mechanicalcharacteristics in ankles with LAI.Methods: fifty-two recreationally active subjects with LAI were randomized to 4 group (A, B, C, D) Group A control group (n=13) Group B BOSU Exercise training (n=13) Group C Neuromuscular training (n=13) Group D Combined intervention of B+C (n=13) Subjects in the intervention group were trained on the affected limb with static and dynamiccomponents using a training protocol for12-weeks. The ankle joint stiffness andneutral zone in inversion and eversion directions on the involved and uninvolved limbs wasmeasured at baseline, Mid, Post and post follow-up-intervention using a dynamometer. Results: There was significant interaction observed between the group across the experimental trails p=.022). Similarly, there was also a significant effect of time differences observed on muscle strength concentric-eccentric inversion120 degree (p=.000). Similarly, there was also a significant effect of time differences observed on concentric-eccentric eversion at 30 degree per second (p=.000).
