Functional Movement Screen (FMS) Injury Prevention ProgramWhat is the Functional Movement Screen (FMS)?
- It is a series of movement-based tests that challenge mobility, stability, and coordination.
- It highlights areas of movement deficiency and demonstrates limitations in the body based on how you perform the test.
- Those who score poorly on the screens are likely using compensatory movement patterns during regular or athletic activities.
- If left unchecked, sub-optimal movement patterns are reinforced, leading to reduced performance, poor biomechanics, and possibly contributing to future injury.
- Athletes looking to improve their performance and reduce injury risk by finding and correcting areas of deficiency in their movement quality.
- The everyday person who doesn’t have an active injury but wants to be proactive in managing their physical health before an injury happens.
- Anyone who currently is experiencing pain but hasn’t been able to get rid of their pain through passive modalities (ie. massage, acupuncture, ultrasounds, etc).
- The session will last 1 hour in total.
- Goals will be discussed and a thorough medical history will be taken.
- Bring a change of clothes and expect to break a sweat during the tests.
- Corrective exercises are given to be completed as homework with follow up sessions used to track progress and improvements.
