Abstract

     The Star Excursion Balance Test is a test of dynamic stability. This test may offer a simple, reliable, low-cost alternative to instrumented methods that are currently available. The goal of the SEBTs is to reach as far as possible with one leg in each of 8 prescribed directions while maintaining balance on the contralateral leg. This study determined the effectiveness of the SEBT in assessing reach deficit of soccer players with recurrent ankle sprain. Twenty-six (26) varsity players from University of Perpetual Help System Binan were selected as respondents. T-test was chosen by the statistician to compute for the statistical significance. Results showed that among the 8 direcions, half of it showed significance and non-significance. The anterolateral, lateral, posterolateral and medial has no significant difference between uninjured and injured ankle with p-value of greater than 0.05. Significant differences in mean scores were established with p-value of less than 0.05 between uninjured and injured ankles for the anterior, posterior, posteromedial  and anteromedial of the respondents. The Star Excursion Balance Test  showed effectiveness in the study among the four (4) directions such as anterior, posterior, posteromedial and anteromedial.
