The medical professionals at Results Physical Therapy in Gainesville and Fairfax, Virginia offer the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) as a screening tool to determine if you have any overlooked deficits not identified by other standard evaluations. FMS enables the identification of your risk factors to decrease injuries and improve your performance. For more information, call or make an appointment online today.
When you undergo FMS at Results Physical Therapy, you get placed in extreme positions so that your movement deficits become noticeable. Limited fundamental mobility leads to you using compensatory movements to perform the activity. Inefficient use of compensation leads to poor biomechanics, limiting your performance gains, while also reducing your body’s ability to remain resilient against the risks of involvement in activities.
FMS calls for you to perform movement patterns that require mobility and stability and include:
The ability to perform the activities get scored from 0-3 points.
FMS works at any fitness level to simplify movements and their impact on your body. This streamlined system offers simple language, creates a functional baseline, and helps the professionals at Results Physical Therapy quickly identify dangerous movement patterns and your readiness to perform exercises.
