What is A Functional Movement Screening?
FMS is an effective, evidence-based screening tool that detects functional limitations, asymmetric, muscle imbalance and inefficient movements that put athletes at risk for injury or compromises optimal performance. FMS is a grading system that assesses and records movement patterns that are crucial to normal function.
The FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns to be addressed with corrective exercises. It also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved. A Functional Movement Screen score is generated to target problems and track progress. Once scoring is completed, an individualized exercise regimen is prescribed to restore proper movement, build strength and improve flexibility. In many cases, injuries can linger on without proper treatment, it is important that athletes learn to treat their bodies with respect and care. Athletes who take an opportunity to have their bodies properly evaluated at Agility, have enjoyed our work and they leave us knowing that they have received the most effective care possible, that caters to their distinctive needs.
