Abstract:   (113 Views)
Purpose: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of taping on the feedforward activity of the lower limb muscles during single-leg jump-landing in elite volleyball players with and without chronic ankle instability.
Methods: The electromyographic activities of the tibialis anterior, lateral gastrocnemius, peroneus longus, gluteus medius, vastus lateralis, and rectus femoris of the non-dominant leg were registered before and after taping in 26 volleyball players while they were performing the spike skill with the single-leg landing. These volleyball players participated in the study by purposive sampling. The root mean square (RMS) was used to calculate muscle activity before and after taping. The data were analyzed using the Manova tests at p≤0.05.
Results: The results of the MANOVA- test showed the group is not significant factor any of the variables in the feedforward phase, except for the maximum RMS of the peroneus longus muscle (p=0.01).
Conclusion: The results showed that taping cannot improve the feedforward activity of the selected muscles during single-leg landing in people with chronic ankle instability. Therefore, it is recommended that other exercises and methods be employed to improve the muscle feedforward activity in these people during rehabilitation stages.
