Functional Movement Screen

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a means to measure and evaluate specific movement patterns essential to normal function. The calculations and scoring system help us to identify functional limitations and asymmetries. Body imbalance can lead to a drop in performance and increase your risk for injury.

The FMS scoring system allows us to monitor progress of your training and provides us with a foundation of which to build your corrective exercise program to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

What are the Benefits of FMS?

The Functional Movement Screen is a simple test to perform and reproduce so that you can detect inefficient movement of the body during essential patterns for daily living and especially for those training to be an elite athlete.

Mobility: The FMS can detect early restrictions in movement which can lead to compensations throughout the body. The screens are able to easily identify where in the kinetic chain you might be over stressing.

Stability: Instability is very easily recognized in most of the screening tests in the FMS. Any asymmetry in the body’s ability to stabilize itself can have detrimental affects on performance and increase the risk of injury.

Balance: Our bodies perform best when we have the same ability to move in all three planes of motion equally left and right. Our core strength is essential to our limbs functioning at their best. Without a strong core we are weak. The FMS helps us to test not only core strength but it actually breaks it down from left sided weakness or right. This information is very valuable when constructing a corrective exercise program that is specific to the athlete’s required movement pattern.
