Y Balance Test (Lower Quarter)

The Y-Balance Test is a dynamic test performed in a single-leg stance that requires strength, flexibility, core control and proprioception. It has been used to assess physical performance, demonstrate functional symmetry and identify athletes at greater risk for lower extremity injury. The protocol described here is for the Lower Quarter version of the Y Balance test. There is also an Upper Quarter Y Balance Test which tests upper body balance and stability.
