Designation:
If you were to kick a ball, which foot would you use? [This will be the dominant foot] Now stand on your non-dominant foot. [Before continuing the test assess the position of the dominant leg as such: the dominant leg should be held in approximately 30 degrees of hip flexion and 45 degrees of knee flexion] Again, you should try to maintain stability for 20 seconds with your eyes closed. I will be counting the number of times you move out of this position. Place your hands on your hips. When you close your eyes the testing time will begin. [Start timer when subject closes their eyes]
