  Title Kinetic chain dysfunction in a 16-year-old soccer player with ankle pain [case report]
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2011 Jun;12(1):861-864
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The objective of this case report is to discuss the clinical course of a 16-year-old female soccer player who sought care for ankle pain during soccer practices.

Clinical Features: A 16-year-old female soccer player had ankle pain of 3 weeks duration. The pain was subjectively described as achy, but also sharp and “tingly” after 15 minutes of running, and would ease if she stopped or rubbed the area. Evaluation revealed postural imbalances, weakness of the core musculature and lower kinetic chain, a 30-degree toe-out foot flare, and subluxation in the lumbopelvic region and lower extremity.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was treated with full spine and extremity adjusting and a functional rehabilitation program focused on the muscle imbalance/weaknesses of the core musculature and lower kinetic chain. She responded well, was able to return to play, and her foot flare decreased to 20 degrees.

Conclusion: Adolescent patients with sport injuries may benefit from chiropractic and rehabilitation to assist them in improving joint mechanics that can return them to play sooner as well as aid in improving postural distortions.
