The Effect of Heel Height of Shoe on Ankle Muscle Activation Pattern in Women with Functional Ankle Instability during Stair Descending

SUMMARY Background. Wearing high-heeled shoes (HHS) increases the risk of musculoskeletal disorders, especially in unstable situations. This study was conducted to evaluate the electromyographic (EMG) activity of the ankle muscles during stair descent with HHS in women with and without functional ankle instability (FAI). Methods. In this experimental study, Thirty-six subjects were surveyed in 4 … Continued
