Have you ever sprained your ankle?
Effects of focal joint cooling on sensory and mixed nerves in patients with chronic ankle instability
Saliba Susan, A
The Exercise and Sport Injury Laboratory at the University of Virginia is seeking individuals with previous ankle sprains for a research study studying the effects of ice treatment on pain, balance, and nerve activity. The purpose of this study is to understand the effects of ice on different nerves in the lower leg, as well as pain and function, in children and adults with chronic ankle instability before and after applying ice bags to the sprained ankle. This study will require 1 study session, lasting approximately 1 and ½ hours.
