Study Objectives

Outcome measures can provide a clearer picture of what you can expect from a treatment.
Primary outcome measures
Changes from baseline in lower extremity kinetics during walking
Changes from baseline in self-reported ankle function
Changes from baseline in talar cartilage deformation before and after walking
Secondary outcome measures
2. Changes from baseline in plantar pressure during forward lunges, lateral hops, and a step-down
Changes from baseline in static balance
