Performance Testing: Injury Prevention for Athletes

Try this simple 5 minute home test to find our your risk of injury, and your lower limb performance.

The Y-balance test is well documented to highlight functional differences between limbs, which can often occur after injuries like ankle sprain, patellofemoral pain syndrome, and ACL tears.

It can also give athletes a great pre-season baseline score for comparison against future injuries.

Challenge your friends and teammates and share your score on your club website.

My forward reach was 96.14%.

Good luck and stay safe out there!
