Arts and Sciences
The purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between ankle injuries and future knee injuries. The subjects used for the study were all Division I athletes at Valparaiso University. The question to be answered was: Are ankle injuries precursors to knee injuries? Data was collected through a survey which was distributed to all athletic teams. The survey required information about previous ankle and knee injuries of each athlete. All surveys are in the process of coding and analysis. Descriptive statistics, correlation, and linear regression for inferential data will be used for analysis. No conclusion has yet been made about the relationship between ankle injuries and future knee injuries as data is under review.
