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 a decreased risk of injury when training, allow more precise movement to enhance performance and supply the body with the building blocks for return to sport or activity after injury.
The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA):
The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is used to identify specific movement limitations that give you pain. This detailed assessment is used to find which movement patterns are dysfunctional in the body and helps determine why pain is present in the body.
Both the FMS and the SFMA are used by Collegiate and Professional Sports Teams to help prevent and recover from injury more effectively.
