Objective: The objective of this study was to compare the effect of ankle taping versus balance exercises on static and dynamic postural stability in Kathak dancers with chronic ankle instabilities by the end of 6 weeks. Subjects and methods: 50 female Kathak dancers with chronic ankle instability were randomly assigned into two equal groups: ankle taping and balance exercises. The balance exercise group performed balance exercises along with conventional treatment protocol for 6 weeks 3 session/ week. Ankle taping was performed for 6 weeks and was renewed 3 times/ week along with conventional treatment protocol. Before and after interventions, time in balance test and star excursion balance test were done. Result: In ankle taping group time in balance test improved from 6.84±1.625 to 10.36±1.890. In balance training group time in balance test improved from 8.92±2.482 to 15.96±2.821. In ankle taping group, SEBT improved in anterior direction from 65.40±6.45 to 70.75±5.706, anteromedial from 67.88±6.912 to 72.412±7.013, medially from 65.34±6.98 to 69.88±5.94, posteromedially from 64.78±7.97 to 68.98±6.32, posteriorly from 58.53±5.78 to 64.26±5.16, posterolaterally from 58.01±7.10 to 63.75±6.90, laterally from 49.460±7.88 to 54.85±8.74 and anteromedially from 58.46±11.39 to 63.002±11.11. In balance training group, SEBT improved in anterior direction from 65.66±10.15 to 73.12±10.54, anteromedially from 67.06±10.85 to 75.05±10.56, medially from 69.03±10.87 to 72.59±3.83, posteromedially from 68.76±5.57 to 72±4.11, posteriorly from 60.95±7.145 to 66.55±7.084, posterolaterally from 61.07±13.51 to 64.68±9.46, laterally from 50.24±8.27 to 54.50±7, anterolaterally from 62.77±17.73 to 68.33±9.60. Conclusion: Balance training showed significant effect on static postural stability but there was no significant difference in dynamic postural stability.
