What is Functional Movement Screening?

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function ( The FMS is able to identify faulty biomechanics or movement patterns in the athletic population by highlighting specific areas of muscle weakness, muscle tightness or muscle imbalances. Using scientific principles and research, the FMS has shown an increased risk of injury is associated with athletes who show these compensatory or faulty movement patterns.
