  1. OMAS = Olerud-Molander Ankle Score; PCS = Physical Health Score; MCS = Mental Health Score
  2. #Mixed model analyses on repeated measures for differences between training group and control group and change over time adjusting for gender, age-group, follow-up time and interaction between age-group and treatment effect. The p-values reflect the interaction between age-group and treatment effect.
