Objective: This study was designed to assess the efficacy of the Mulligan's Movement with mobilization & taping technique in functional recovery of lateral ankle sprain when used as an adjunct to conventional therapy & thus establish the role of the hypothesis of positional fault in lateral ankle sprain.

Study Design: Cohort study involving 30 patients diagnosed with grade 1 & 2 lateral ankle sprain divided randomly in 2 groups of 15, one control group & another experimental group.

Methodology: Control group received conventional therapy which involved RICE or ultrasound & home exercise program according to the stage of healing, while experimental group received Mulligan's MWM & taping along with conventional therapy. Duration of the treatment was 6 days or till VAS on walking reduces to 1.

Results: VAS on walking & tender point palpation showed significantly greater reduction in experimental group (p

Conclusion: When Mulligan's ankle technique & fibular taping is used along with the conventional therapy, there is a faster functional recovery. This study highlights the importance of positional fault concept in clinical practice.
