Certified for the Y Balance Test

My productive effort today was to get certified for the Y Balance Test.  This test has been shown to be able to predict injury risk based on asymmetry and comparison to norms that the people over at www.move2perform.com are compiling.  I really like the idea of being able to confidently tell a patient that he or she is or is not at risk for further injury.  Especially those who want to return to sports.

We just bought the overpriced PVC to administer this test at my PT clinic (NorthShore University HealthSystem – 1729 Benson, Evanston, IL 60201).  So I am good to go to officially use it.  Not really a big deal, but just another reliable way to test my more athletic patients.
