Clinical Evaluation-Frequency

The instability itself may be acute or chronic, the differentiating feature being whether the event occurred within the previous 24 hours. The number of recurrences (frequency of instability) is also critical in the classification scheme because it contributes to the level of damage to anatomic structures. This characteristic is extremely important when considering the degree and cause of instability. This component of the history is critical in determining the appropriate treatment.
