Objective: To determine the effect of Tai Chi training on ankle proprioception in participants with Chronic Ankle Instability (CAI). Design: Randomized controlled trial. Method: Forty participants with CAI were randomly divided into a Tai Chi group and a control group, with 20 participants in each group. The Tai Chi group underwent 24-styled simplified Tai Chi rehabilitation training 3 times a week for 8 weeks, while the Control group did not undergo any rehabilitation training.
