Ankle sprain is a common musculoskeletal injury throughout the world, affecting tens of thousands of patients daily. What treatments for lateral inversion ankle injury are most effective? When is a wait- and-see approach more beneficial than a training program, and functional interventions more appropriate than surgical treatment? What surgical interventions yield better outcomes for function and instability compared with conservative treatment, particularly when the calcaneofibular ligament is disrupted, and does one postoperative regimen produce better results than another? These interesting and clinically applicable questions are addressed in this webinar course titled “Effective Treatments for Ankle Sprains and Instability,” hosted jointly by JOSPT and JBJS. The course is based on 2 published research articles—one from JBJS and the other from JOSPT. Participants in this continuing education activity are asked to read both articles carefully before watching the recorded webinar.
