Functional Movement Assessment
Our Therapist Ryan LeFever, PT, MPT is trained in the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) as well as the Selective Functional Movement Screen (SFMA).
The Functional Movement Screen(FMS)
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS)is a pre-participation screening tool designed to identify compensatory movement patterns that are indicative of increased injury risk and inefficient movement that causes reduced performance. This test gives important movement feedback to allow an individual to move the most efficient way possible to decrease the risk of injury when training, allowing more precise movement to enhance performance and supply the body with the building blocks for return to sport or activity after injury. This test was designed by renowned Physical Therapists ( Gray Cook and Lee Burton ).
Who Would Benefit from the FMS?
The Functional movement screen is important for anyone that is active and wants to prevent injuries and identify potential risks for pain in the future. The FMS is used by a lot of Professional, Collegiate and High School Athletes to keep them on the field or court without pain and injury. It is the single best test for objectively identifying movement quality needed to be active with sports and recreational activities.
