Functional Movement Screening

What is Functional Movement Screening?

Functional Movement Screening involves between 1-3 tests that document and grade your movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. We look to identify problem patterns that limit your progress in functional training and that actually increase your likelihood of injury when taking part in physical conditioning.  Safety in training should be paramount, the FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. It also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.

These tests are standardized and provide the basis for corrective strategies. The FMS can be applied at any fitness level, simplifying corrective strategies of a wide array of movement issues. It identifies specific exercises based on individual FMS scores to instantly create customized treatment plans.
