functional movement screen (FMS)

The Functional Movement Screen is a tool used to evaluate an individuals risk of injury, as well as performance-limiting movement patterns.  FMS does this by assessing asymmetries or imbalances by taking an individual through  a series of specific movements.

FMS is a beneficial assessment tool to:

  • Recognize movement patterns that support work, sports and daily activities.

  • Understand the true relationship that movement patterns play in our health and fitness goals.

  • Explain the role of mobility, motor control, and functional patterns in fundamental movement.

  • Identify basic movement asymmetries that may lead to increase injury risk.
