Context: Ligamentous injuries around the ankle joint are among the most common sporting injuries, especially in jumping sports (e.g., basketball, volleyball). They are not always well-managed. Associated injuries are frequently not diagnosed and the rehabilitation of ligamentous injuries is often inadequate, leading to a high rate of recurrence. Aims: The aim of this study was to find out effects of ultrasound therapy (UT), UT with taping, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) training, PNF training with taping in treatment, and rehabilitation of high ankle sprain injury. Settings and Design: The experimental design used in this study was random group design. Of the total population with ligament injuries of the ankle, 50 suffering from high ankle sprain injury were randomly selected. Materials and Methods: Fifty subjects suffering from high ankle sprain injury were randomly selected and divided into five groups consisting of 10 subjects in each. Group I underwent UT, Group II underwent UT with taping, Group III underwent PNF training, Group IV underwent PNF training with taping, and Group V was considered as the control group, which was managed with RICE protocol and did not receive any specialized treatment. Statistical Analysis Used: To find out the significance of the difference among the five different treatments on a particular dependent variable, analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used. Results: It was concluded that combining ultrasound with taping and PNF training with taping were found to be more beneficial in the treatment and rehabilitation of high ankle sprain injury. Conclusions: It was concluded that combining ultrasound with taping and PNF training with taping were found to be more beneficial in the treatment and rehabilitation of high ankle sprain injury. The combined effect of UT, PNF training, and taping may be explored by future researchers.
