Correlation of BMI with Dynamic balance using Y-Balance Test in Young Adults with Flexible Flat Foot: A Pilot study
Keywords:Body mass index, dynamic balance, Y balance test.
Introduction: - Increase in body mass index suggests an increase in adiposity, Excess body fat deposition
leads to change in the Center of Pressure which leads to altered biomechanics of the body. Different systems
work together to maintain balance. The present study finds a relationship between BMI and dynamic balance
in young adults with flexible flat foot.
Method: - In this study, 30 participants were recruited based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Of the
30 participants; 10 were of normal weight, 10 were overweight and 10 were obese. Y balance test was
Discussion: - The study showed that dynamic balance significantly changes with an increase in weight in
young adults with flat feet. It is more significant in overweight and obese subjects. Any changes in ankle
and foot complex leads to changes in weight-bearing, muscle imbalance static as well as dynamic balance
