Evidence Practice Guidelines: Return to sport decisions after an acute lateral ankle sprain injury – introducing the PAASS framework – an international multidisciplinary consensus
Despite being the most commonly incurred sports injury with a high recurrence rate, there are no guidelines to inform return to sport (RTS) decisions following acute lateral ankle sprain injuries. We aimed to develop a list of assessment items to address this gap.
This international inter-professional Delphi survey study recommends that health professionals should assess pain severity,
ankle impairments, athlete perception, sensorimotor control and
sport/functional performance to determine an athlete’s ability to
RTS after an acute lateral ankle sprain injury.
Summary/conclusion: The PAASS framework provides clear clinician consensus-driven direction of what is important & what is not important when making decisions for return to sport (RTS) after an acute lateral ankle sprain injury
