Functional Movement Evaluations
Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
Functional Movement Screen (FMA)
The FMS helps us identify dangerous movement patters so that they can be addressed. It also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved with decreased risk of injury/reinjury. The FMS can be applied at any health or fitness level as well as provide a functional baseline to mark progress and provide a means to measure performance.
The FMS has proven to be an accurate predictor of future injury in the National Football League (NFL), USA Track and Field, and United States Military. The FMS is being used by many organizations as a gauge for training volumes and sports performance. The FMS holding up on the highest levels of human performance translates amazingly well to the rest of us who want to remain healthy during every day activities as well as exercise.
Y-Balance Tes (YBT)
Combined, these screens compose the Functional Movement System. We select the appropriate screens, based on each individual. We then enter the results of someone’s screen into our Move2Perform software, which has been used in the U.S. military and professional sports teams internationally. It is a movement analysis tool that identifies the risk of injury using an algorithm based on their peers and determines the level of deficit, and thus, the recommended action. We use this on individuals or teams in order to improve performance and durability, keeping weekend warriors and athletes alike healthy in their sport or activity. Movement is life!
