The Functional Movement Screen is a series of 7 movements used to evaluate for muscle imbalances and movement dysfunctions.
The biggest predictor of suffering a future injury is a history of previous injury. This means that even after the pain is gone, there is still work to be done to correct muscle imbalances and movement dysfunctions to prevent the injury from coming back.
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) assesses your risk of future injury by evaluating the quality of your movement. Each of the seven functional movements are graded on a scale of 0-3. The goal of the screen is to score above a 14 with no asymmetries or pain during the movements.
