Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Up to now there is almost no information about proprioceptive deficits after ankle fractures and their role in the rehabilitation process. However, it is known that in the knee joint there is no correlation between mechanical and subjective instability after rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) but between proprioception and subjective instability and active controlled motion can decrease the proprioceptive deficit.Proprioceptive training of ankle fractures is commonly done with balance boards or balance circles. In patients with need of partial weightbearing this is not possible until full weightbearing is allowed. The aim of this study was to look for possible beneficial rehabilitation effects in the use of active controlled motion after operatively treated unstable ankle fractures with the need of partial weightbearing in the first six postoperative weeks.
