Functional Movement Screen
Used by thousands to quickly assess basic movement capacity
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
The FMS is an innovative system used to evaluate movement pattern quality for clients and athletes. The screen is comprised of seven fundamental movement patterns that require a balance of mobility and stability and place the individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable.
FMS provides a consistent and reliable testing method identifying movement limitations and dysfunction. It allows us to set progressive corrective strategies that help to improve efficiency, durability and performance. The Functional Movement Screen provides an enhanced foundation for exercise and performance programming.
How we use the FMS
Typically we use the FMS to determine the quality of high-threshold dynamic motor control, and to help predict the likelihood of injury. The screen allows us to track progress and identify the areas that need improvement when looking at more complex movement patterns and performance.
As with all our techniques, the FMS may be used in any consultation, assessment or treatment session as required. If you specifically want to have an FMS screen, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your booking.
