$138.95 CAD


Product Format
    This package includes the following:
    • 20 online articles from sports medicine journals
    • Online continuing education exam
    Ankle sprains are one of the most common sport injuries and often lead to chronic ankle instability. Evidence-Based Practice for Chronic Ankle Instability Online CE Course provides a series of 20 peer-reviewed articles presenting evidence addressing how patients with this condition compensate throughout their kinetic chain, the benefits of prescribing rehabilitation after an ankle sprain, and the best treatments to prevent recurrence. You’ll find information on the changes in physical activity level for people with chronic ankle instability as well as the psychological changes associated with it.

    This course supports the initiative in the athletic training profession to integrate the best new research and evidence into clinical decision making with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

    Once you complete the readings and pass the 100-question exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.

    Learning Objectives
    • Describe the changes in physical activity levels for people with chronic ankle instability.
    • Educate others about the changes in perception and psychological changes associated with chronic ankle instability.
    • Be able to implement the optimal treatment interventions for preventing chronic ankle instability.
    • Educate others about the health and economic benefits of prescribing rehabilitation after an ankle sprain.
    • Explain how patients with chronic ankle instability compensate throughout their kinetic chain.

    Jeffrey B. Driban, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is an assistant professor in the division of rheumatology at Tufts University School of Medicine and a member of the special and scientific staff at Tufts Medical Center. The goal of his research is to explore novel biochemical and imaging markers to gain a better understanding of osteoarthritis pathophysiology and potential disease phenotypes.

    Driban received his bachelor’s degree in athletic training from the University of Delaware. During his doctoral training at Temple University, he focused on various aspects of osteoarthritis (e.g., early pathophysiology in animal models, biochemical markers in joint fluid, systematic reviews of risk factors for osteoarthritis, survey of medication use among patients with osteoarthritis). In January 2010, he began a postdoctoral research fellowship in the division of rheumatology at Tufts Medical Center, where he continued his focus on osteoarthritis and learned new assessment strategies in magnetic resonance imaging.

    Stephen Thomas, PhD, ATC, is an assistant professor at Temple University. Thomas received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in athletic training from Temple University. He then received his PhD in biomechanics and movement science from the University of Delaware. Before working at Neumann University, Thomas performed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania in the department of orthopedic surgery and biomedical engineering, where he received a Ruth L. Kirschstein Research Grant from the National Institutes of Health. He has served on several national committees and is the chair of the research committee for the American Society of Shoulder and Elbow Therapists.

    Thomas continues to be active in the area of research, participating as a manuscript reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals. He is on the executive board for Athletic Training and Sports Health Care. He also was an ad hoc grant reviewer for the Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association (EATA) and is the cofounder of Sports Medicine Research (, a website dedicated to the summary of sports medicine research. Thomas has numerous peer-reviewed publications and abstracts in the areas of shoulder adaptations from overhead throwing and the basic science of rotator cuff injury and healing. He has also had several invited lectures throughout the United States in the area of overhead throwing.
