Muscle fatigue of the trunk extensor musculature plays a considerable role in chronic low back pain (LBP). The underlying physiology of fatigue is complex and not fully understood. The Kinesio® Taping (KT) supports damaged structures while allowing mobility and at the same time may influence some of the mechanisms associated with muscle fatigue suc...

Chronic Ankle Instability (CAI) is a clinical entity, with a mechanical and / or functional component, which usually manifests with repetitive episodes of subjective ankle joint failure when carrying out activities under load, and which can cause chronic pain, instability and functional alterations in activities of daily or sports life. Given the variety in the quantification of the criteria for cataloging patients with CAI, and the absence of a gold standard in its diagnosis, the tendency of different researchers has been to create specific assessment scales that are mostly self-applied, being the Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool (CAIT) one of the most reliable and sensitive in this diagnosis. However, it has not been possible to establish a correlation between the values of this type of scales, and the theoretical weakness and decrease in the contractile activity of the ankle musculature, which is accepted as logical in patients suffering from CAI. It is because of that in this project we expect to quantify the degree of correlation between the CAIT score and the values of maximum force, work and power obtained by isokinetic dynamometry of the evertor and invertor muscles of the ankle in subjects with CAI. Since the isokinetic dynamometry is considered the "Gold Standard" procedure for the objective evaluation of muscular strength, in the research field. So that this research group hopes to demonstrate that the parameters obtained from the isokinetic dynamometry in the eversor and invertor musculature of the ankle maintain a clear correlation with the severity of the CAI quantified by the CAIT. Therefore, an impact is expected through the obtaining of normative values, sub-classifications according to clinical severity, specific differences and allowing, prospectively to this project, the intervention through specific protocols of isokinetic dynamometry to improve the deficiencies that could be found and adapt them to the different CAI severity subgroups. This aspect could clearly influence the current strength training, adapting it and improving its effectiveness and above all its efficiency. The collaboration with relevant clinical centers in the field of sports medicine will allow the achievement of the objective, as well as the continuation of the policy of collaboration to incorporate new researchers into the line of this project in the future. Likewise, the dissemination of these results by the usual scientific means, hopes to achieve a relevant national and international impact, associated with the high prevalence of the clinical entity studied (CAI). In such a way that this project aims finally at the objective characterization of isokinetic performance parameters in healthy subjects and with CAI not only as the ultimate goal, but as a first step to establish a line of research that allows in future projects to delve into the study of different therapeutic interventions in subjects with CAI.
