This screening philosophy and corresponding exercises are “based on sound science, years of innovation and current research.”
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is comprised of seven movement tests that evaluate balance, mobility and stability. They assess basic movement patterns uncomplicated by specific skills, to find asymmetries/limitations/weaknesses.
Over time individuals adapt their own patterns of movement. The screen determines if these movements increase the likelihood of injury. If so, correcting these patterns now may save your body in the long run!
