What is FMS?
The Functional Movement Screen is a reliable tool that can be used to identify individuals who are more likely to become injured.
There are three basic outcomes of the FMS:
- You will have an acceptable screen after which it is safe to proceed with full activities (Low Risk).
- You may have a screen that is not acceptable, but you simply may require an individualised corrective exercise program to return to optimal function (Medium Risk).
- Or you may have pain with movement, in which this will require further assessment before proceeding with a corrective exercise program (High Risk).
Once you have been through this screen you will be determined to be either balanced and functional or dysfunctional and injury prone.
Many studies have shown that previous injury is a significant risk factor, even as high as a 19 X greater risk of re-injury compared with normal population.
