The Functional Movement Screen™ is a tool used to systematically identify the major limitations in your functional movement patterns, that are impeding your ability to move as your body was intended to.
The human body is a master at adapting to injuries. As soon as your injury is no longer acute your body begins adjusting to its new reality, establishing new compensatory micro and macro patterns of movement. Without intervention (opens new website) these new, less efficient movement patterns quickly become the norm.
You work-out to increase flexibility, strength, endurance, and power. But are you simply putting fitness on top of dysfunction? Reinforcing defective biomechanics doesn’t make you better or more effective – but it will establish you as an ideal candidate for injury.
Up Your Game – We’ll Show You How
Perfect practice makes perfect. But how do you practice perfectly when your body is constantly thwarted by the remnants of past injuries?
Sportmed’s kinesiologist — Eric Arsenau, FMS Level II – uses the 7 deceptively simple movement-screens of the FMS™ (opens a new website) in his assessments and follow-up evaluations, to rate and rank movement, test mobility and stability.
Eric translates the results and develops your program of corrective exercises.
You put in the time, effort and stick-to-it-ness that got you this far — and with the FMS™ you’ll soon be leaving your personal-best’s in the dust.
