Ankle sprain is one of the most common sports injuries and many people suffer from chronic ankle instability after ankle sprains. Changes in the function of the lower limbs following chronic ankle instability make a person susceptible to re-injury of ankle sprains. This is a systematic review of studies that investigated the kinematic changes of the lower limbs in people with chronic ankle instability during unilateral jump landing tasks.
Articles in English were searched in Google Scholar, Science Direct, PubMed, Scopus, ProQuest, and Cochrane Library databases without a time limit until 2021 with keywords related to “chronic ankle instability,” “kinematics,” and “single-leg jump-landing.” The inclusion criteria included the subjects being male and female with ankle instability and the type of single-leg jump-landing task. The modified checklist of Downs and Black (1998) was used to evaluate the quality of the studies.
Based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria and the study quality review, 15 articles out of 762 studies, which investigated the kinematics of the lower limbs in the performance of unilateral jump landing, were comprehensively examined.
According to the findings of this study, individuals with chronic ankle instability showed kinematic changes in the lower limbs during various unilateral jump landing tasks. These changes are possible factors for the recurrence of ankle sprain injury. The findings show the necessity of developing and creating a rehabilitation program that comprehensively considers the kinematic changes.
