Abstract

Dual-task interference is a phenomenon that often results in performance tradeoffs when simultaneously completing tasks. Inconsistent results in the literature suggest an individualistic response to dual-tasking among chronic ankle instability (CAI) patients. We aim to examine the relationship between dual-task balance outcomes and patient- and clinician-oriented outcomes as well as injury characteristics in CAI patients. We identified moderate correlations between a higher number of ankle rolling instances in the past 3 months and worse balance while dual-tasking. Our results highlight the potential individualistic nature of dual-task impairments that may be masked within larger group comparisons.
