Y Balance Test: A Missing Link
Written by FMS Tuesday, January 19, 2016 YBT
The Y Balance Test (YBT) is a thoroughly researched, yet easy, way to quantify a person’s motor control and demonstrate functional symmetry. It brings the FMS movement patterns together in a triplanar motion allowing us to see how the patterns are really working together. The YBT quarters the body and looks at how the core and each extremity function under bodyweight loads.
This information can be used to identify road blocks to a person’s functional performance including measuring pre and post rehabilitation performance, improvement after performance enhancement programs, dynamic balance for fitness programs, and return to sport readiness.
