ABSTRACT: Taping and proprioceptive training are widely reported beneficial in for treatment of nkle sprains. Several studies reported that the proprioceptive sense training is a potential therapy for improving impaired neuromuscular function.The intention of this article was to evaluate Taping followed by proprioceptive training versus proprioceptive training without taping for Ankle Sprain ecurrence rate. All sprained judokas with acute ankle sprain were advised for standard procedure (ice, rest, elevation, and compression with a compressive bandage). Initially 30 sprained judokas were categorized randomly into two groups and then underwent studies for 8 weeks: one group was treated with tape and proprioceptive training and the other only with proprioceptive training. Both groups were followed up for duration of six month. The study indicated that there is not significant difference between taping and without taping groups. Recurrence rate of acute ankle sprain shows no significant linkage between employment of taping or its absence. Further studies with greater number of participants are suggested.
