Functional Movement Screening
How it Works
What it Does
Rank and grade system of documented movement patterns that are key to normal function movement.
Screen movement patterns, to readily identify functional limitations and asymmetries.
Address issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.
Generate a Functional Movement Screen Score, which will be used to target problems and track progress in injury recovery.
Link the scoring system to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.
Monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength when recovering from injury.
Simplify the concept of movement and its impact on the body for injury prevention.
Utilize a simple language, making it easy for the patient / client, and to communicate clearly about progress and treatment options.
Screen effortlessly and identify the diminishing need for extensive testing and analysis.
Creates a functional baseline that provides a means to measure movement performance.
Identify dangerous movement patterns which then can be addressed, and to indicate the readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.
Apply the FMS at any fitness level, simplify corrective strategies of a wide array of movement issues. To identify specific exercises based on the FMS scores to instantly create customized treatment plans.
