The purpose of this research is to examine the effectiveness of ankle braces on functional movement and ankle joint range of motion on female Division 1 collegiate volleyball players. The data will be analyzed to determine if ankle braces impede or help functional movement and ankle joint range of motion. It was hypothesized that ankle braces will not affect overall functional performance but will have an effect on ankle joint range of motion and lower body kinematics.
