Asymmetries are a factor in increased injury risk.
How do we measure and quantify a person’s motor control and functional symmetry? The Y Balance Test (YBT). YBT allows us to quarter the body – left versus right and upper versus lower body – to test how the core and each extremity function under bodyweight loads.
What is YBT?
Having control of your limbs requires a stable core.
The Y Balance Test was developed through years of research in injury prevention and identification of motor control changes that occur after injury. The YBT is a simple way to measure a person’s motor control and demonstrate functional symmetry. The result? A map that identifies road blocks to a person’s functional performance both in rehabilitation and performance worlds.
Who should use YBT?
