How Functional Movement Screens Can Help You
These are questions that Functional Movement Screen (FMS) can help answer.
FMS is a grading system that screens 7 basic movement patterns that are the foundation for normal motion/function. Limitations and asymmetries are identified and then corrective exercises given to address these issues. A score is established for a baseline and to monitor progress on all future test to make sure the corrective exercises are working to return your athletes to optimal function and prevent injuries.
