Functional Movement Screens

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a ranking screen that documents movement patterns in order to identify functional movement limitations and asymmetries. Low FMS scores have been directly correlated with sport related injuries. Often, a problem in one area of your body is being caused by an impairment in another area of your body. For instance, knee problems can be related to impairments in the spine, hip, or ankle.  Once these movement limitations are identified, they can be treated utilizing corrective and strengthening exercises. The FMS is used widely throughout professional sports including the NFL and NBA to screen athletes and then develop treatment/training programs to decrease risk of injury.
