Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
COST: $75.00 + GST
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a product of the exercise philosophy known as Functional Movement Systems. This exercise philosophy and corresponding set of resources is based on reliable scientific principles, years of innovation, and current research.
How it Works - Simplifying Movement
Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and scoring system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries which can reduce training effects, diminish physical conditioning and distort body awareness. The scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore proper movement patterns and increase mobility as well as stability throughout the body.
What it Does - Widespread Benefits
The FMS simplifies the concept of movement and its impact on the body. Its streamlined system has benefits for everyone involved - individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians.
Communication - The FMS utilizes simple language, making it easy for individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians to communicate clearly about progress and treatment.
Evaluation - The screen effortlessly identifies asymmetries and limitations, diminishing the need for extensive testing and analysis.
Standardization - The FMS creates a functional baseline to mark progress and provides a means to measure performance.
Safety - The FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. It also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.
