Use of star excursion balance test in assessing dynamic proprioception following anterior cruciate ligament injury

Author(s): Dr. Atul Mahajan
Abstract: Context: It has been suggested that, with appropriate instruction and practice by the individual and normalization of the reaching distances, the SEBT can be used to provide objective measures to differentiate deficits and improvements in dynamic postural-control related to lower extremity injury and induced fatigue, and it has the potential to predict lower extremity injury. However, literature on its role in assessing proprioception deficits in anterior cruciate ligament deficient knees is limited.
Objective: To provide a narrative review of the SEBT and its implementation and the known contributions to task performance and to systematically review the associated literature to address the SEBT’s usefulness as a clinical tool for the quantification of dynamic postural-control deficits from anterior cruciate ligament deficiency.
