Most people I talk to, including those who exercise regularly, really have no idea what a Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is and why it’s important or how it even applies to them. The FMS helps
The seven movements are scored on a scale of 0-3 and are named below:
The Deep Squat
The Hurdle Step
The In Line Lunge
The Active Straight-Leg Raise
The Trunk Stability Push Up
Not only does this screen produce quantifiable results, but there is also a correlation with how an individual performs and how they score. People who score 14 or above have a 30% increase in performance and of course this is relative to the individuals and those who score a 14 or below have a 30% increase risk of injury. So what do you do after you get scored? I am then able to determine the appropriate exercises or stretches and provide the client with the best recommendations to address any mobility or stability issues.
So, are you an athlete, a “regular person” who has an injury history or afraid of getting hurt while exercising, or maybe wondering why something just doesn’t feel right? Call us, come in and receive an FMS. Mention this post and receive one for $49. OR not in the area, find a facility who can do an FMS for you, you won’t regret it! Knowledge is power!
