Functional Movement Screening

How it Works

FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. The FMS identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of training and increase the risk of injury.

The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

Exercise professionals monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.

What it Does

The FMS can be applied at any fitness level, and simplifies corrective strategies for all movement issues. It identifies specific exercises based on individual FMS scores to instantly create customized treatment plans.

With the FMS we can identify dangerous movement patterns and evaluate your risk of injury.

By utilizing the corrective exercises we can increase the ability to train and decrease the risk of injury.

The FMS test is a motion screen performed on every athlete moving through the program. It is a very powerful tool that helps us to evaluate and identify potential injury areas in all of our athletes by looking at patterns of flexibility, mobility, and imbalance. Once a score is obtained we can instruct the athlete through a series of corrective exercises that help to address their specific needs, elevate their score, and ultimately bring them to a state of condition where chance of injury is greatly reduced.
