dc.description.abstract Previously the focus has been on the improvement of strength prior to proprioception (Calliet, 1997; Flemister et al. 1998 and Buhler et al. 2002). However according to Oloff (1994); Vegso (1995); Calliet (1997); Kawaguchi (1999); Buhler et al. (2002) and McGrew et al. (2003), focus should lie in obtaining a functional range of motion (increased flexibility) and proprioceptive ability and strength will follow with normalization of the relationship of the anatomical structures. All research in this regard has never assessed the assumption that the strength of the relevant musculature would return (Blokker et al.1992 and Klaue et al.1998). The objectives of this study were: to determine the relative effectiveness of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation as compared to the Active Rocker-Board Exercises in the rehabilitation of chronic ankle sprains; as well as to determine the best sequence of applying these techniques to chronic ankle sprains in terms of objective clinical findings. en
