The chapter will culminate with a brief series of general comments from the authors about the significance of the CPG for clinical practice, in order to develop some excitement about the topic.
2. Pathoanatomy/Differential Diagnosis, Risk Factors, and Prognosis
The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the pathoanatomy, risk factors, and prognosis of lateral ankle sprains according to the clinical practice guideline. This information is important to orient the learner to the health condition to which the clinical practice guideline pertains, as well as to cover the content of the clinical practice guideline as it relates to risk factors and prognosis.
3. Clinical Measures
This chapter will discuss the use of pencil-and-paper measurements of patients’ self-reported functioning to guide physical therapy management of lateral ankle sprains. In addition, to helping drive the clinical judgment about how to integrate the patient’s perspective into treatment, patient-reported outcome measures are also helpful for objective documentation and to establish a measurement regimen to procure insurance payment.
