Overhead Squat Test Analysis

The objective of the Overhead Squat Test is to observe 3 things:
(1) Total kinetic-chain neuromuscular efficiency,
(2) Integrated-functional strength, and
(3) Dynamic flexibility.
Specific postural deviantions and abnormal movements will be observed during controlled activity.
5 areas are observed: (1)FOOT/ANKLE (2) KNEE (3) LUMBOPELVIC-HIP COMPLEX (4) SHOULDER/ELBOW (5) CERVICAL
Some examples include flat arches, toes pointing outward, knocked knees, bow-legged appearance, hunching the shoulders, arching the back, and the head dropping forward.
These are just some examples of postural deviations and abnormal movements.
If muscles are unable to act appropriately to do a simple series of squats, then retraining the child's kinematics are crecial for future function and coordination.
"Red Flags" will be pointed out so that parents can watch the child for progression of these imbalances.
"Recommendations" will be given to teh parents so that the child can begin excercises and stretches to correct these postural deviations and abnormal movements.
