Functional Movement Screening
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a tool used to evaluate seven fundamental movement patterns in individuals with no current pain complaint or musculoskeletal injury. The FMS is intended to demonstrate opportunities for improved movement.
The FMS is best introduced as part of a pre-placement or pre-participation examination to determine deficits that may be overlooked during the traditional medical and performance evaluations. Individuals who would benefit from this:
- Athletes from high school, collegiate, professional and club sports
- Weekend warriors
- Individuals looking to return to exercise/sports after injury
- Individuals looking to participate in CrossFit activities
- Industrial athletes such as firefighters, police officers and military personnel
