CAI patients with poorest sensation report more sprains in their history
from Lower Extremity Review
Decreased plantar cutaneous sensation in patients with chronic ankle instability (CAI) is associated with number of prior ankle sprains, according to research from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va. Investigators used Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments to assess plantar cutaneous sensation in 10 patients with CAI, which was defined as having a history of at least one ankle sprain and at least two episodes of giving way in the previous six months.
