Functional Movement Screening

FMS is an effective, evidence-based screening tool that identifies functional limitations, asymmetrics, muscle imbalance and inefficient movements or compensations, which put athletes at risk for injury or compromises optimal performance.

FMS is a grading system that evaluates and documents movement patterns that are key to normal function.

The FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns to be addressed with corrective exercises. It also indicates an individuals readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.

A Functional Movement Screen score is generated to target problems and track progress. Once scoring is completed, an individualized exercise regimen is prescribed to restore proper movement, build strength and improve flexibility.

This program is available at all STRIVE locations.
