Table 3 Active and passive range of motion after functional treatment of acute ankle sprain

From: The effect of taping versus semi-rigid bracing on patient outcome and satisfaction in ankle sprains: a prospective, randomized controlled trial

  Treatment N Mean SD P-value
Passive ROM -week 4 tape 39 12.5 8.9 0.9
semi-rigid brace 41 12.3 11.3
Active ROM - week 4 tape 39 13.7 9.0 0.7
semi-rigid brace 41 12.8 14.1
Passive ROM - week 12 tape 34 3.6 6.4 0.2
semi-rigid brace 35 5.8 7.6
Active ROM - week 12 tape 34 6.1 7,.6 1.0
semi-rigid brace 35 6.1 7.9
  1. Range of motion (ROM) is defined as the difference between injured and uninjured ankle when substracting the maximal dorsoflexion from plantairflexion. N is number of patients, SD standard deviation.
