1. Pathoanatomy, Risk Factors, Differential Diagnosis, and Classification

This chapter begins at the beginning. It covers the latest research on common mechanisms of injury and structures involved with a lateral ankle sprain, risk factors, and outcome measures. Information from this chapter will build a solid intellectual foundation for your examination of a patient with a lateral ankle sprain.

2. Impairment- and Function-Based Examination

An old clinical adage suggests, “if you don’t measure it, it didn’t happen.” In this chapter, you will learn the latest in best-practice recommendations for how to examine a patient with a lateral ankle sprain using valid and reliable clinical tests and measures. Video demonstrations and patient examples will link the chapter’s content to your clinical practice.

3. Patient-Reported Outcome Measures

Efficient and effective care for patients with lateral ankle sprains often depends on solid methods to understand the patient’s disablement from their perspective. This chapter will discuss the best outcome measures to track patient progress, as well as to classify a patient’s lateral ankle sprain so you can provide the right intervention at the right time.
