Purpose : The purpose of this research was to study and to compare the effect of star excursion balance training with and without ankle disc on balance in young basketball players with chronic ankle instability.
Methods : Twenty-two young male basketball players between 13-16 years old from Assumption college participated in this study. Twenty-two were divided into 2 groups (n=11/ group): the experimental group (Star excursion balance training with ankle disc, SEBTR+AD) and the control group (Star excursion balance training with ankle disc, SEBTR). Both groups were trained three times per week for four weeks. Ankle functional performance tests and balance tests performed on Biodex Balance System SD, were taken before and after the experiment. Data were analyzed using mean and standard deviation, and t-test was employed to determine the significant differences of the data before and after the experiment and between the experimental and control groups.
Results : After 4 weeks of training, there were no significant differences in balance variables and ankle functional performance between the control and the experimental groups (p<.05)
Conclusion : A star excursion balance training with and without ankle disc could lead to improvements of balance and ankle functional performance in athletes with chronic ankle instability
