Dynamic balance deficits exist following a concussion, sometimes years after injury. However, clinicians lack practical tools for assessing dynamic balance. The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a significant difference in static and dynamic balance performance between individuals with and without a history of concussion. Participants were placed into a concussion history group or a matched control group with no previous history of concussion and completed the Y Balance Test-Lower Quarter (YBT-LQ) and Balance Error Scoring System (BESS). No significant differences were observed between groups in YBT-LQ reach distances or BESS errors. This study indicates that no deficit in long-term clinical static or dynamic balance test performance exists in collegiate athletes with a general history of concussion.
