  • This report is based on the data from two in vivo strain gage studies of Grade II ACL sprains [17].
  • METHODS: In a prospective study, all ankle sprains presented in the ED from April to July 2004 were assessed by both a SEN and a junior doctor (house officer [HO]) randomized for first observer [18].
  • Lateral ankle sprains. Part II: Acute and chronic treatment [19].
  • The 285,468 compensation claims due to back strains/sprains filed in the 26 SDS states in 1979 suggest that back injuries continue to be a large and costly problem for U.S. workers and their employers [20].
