Functional Movement Screen (FMS):
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a screening tool used to evaluate seven fundamental movement patterns in individuals with no current pain complaint or musculoskeletal injury. The FMS is not intended to diagnose orthopedic problems but rather to demonstrate opportunities for improved movement in individuals.
Functional Movement Screen
The FMS consists of a series of seven mobility and stability exercises and three clearing “tests” that will reveal any imbalances in the body. This allows individuals and trainers to become aware of imbalances in movement before beginning a program, so they can first correct it. The FMS is simple and is used by a wide variety of health and fitness professionals. To find a certified expert, simply search the FMS website for professionals in your area.
