Functional Movement Screen Description
The purpose of a Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is to identify mobility and stability deficiencies in clients’ static and dynamic postures. The screening process consists of seven fundamental movement patterns. The exercise scientist conducting the FMS is looking for any asymmetries or deficits in stabilisation and balance, as well as any limitations in range of motion.
Your exercise scientist will discuss your results with your personal trainer and, where appropriate, will outline specific exercises that can be integrated into your personal training sessions. A FMS report will be generated that can be delivered by your personal trainer, acting in the capacity as your allied health case manager, to your treating allied health professionals. The acquired information can aid your allied health professionals in their diagnostics and assessments. Coupled with a top to toe health assessment, this report will provide a detailed, invaluable and consistent history for those currently treating you and for those who may treat you in future.
