Abstract

Gait has been generally viewed as a largely automated motor task, requiring minimal higher-level cognitive input. Increasing evidence, however, suggest that attention demanding cognitive tasks to disturb gait[1, 2]. Movement variability may influence joint stability and increase the risk of “giving way” at the ankle in individuals with functional ankle instability (FAI)[3]. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of dual-tasking on ankle movement variability in athletes with FAI.
