Functional Movement Screen

Sheddon Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic has eight clinicians trained in providing Functional Movement Screen.

FMS was developed by to identify limitations and inefficient movement patterns. It is an analysis of movements that are required for normal function and healthy movements. The screen is adapted to a specific sport when it is warranted and combines coordination, mobility and stability. As the client is put through these movement patterns, asymmetries and limitations are easily identified.

Early identification of these issues can prevent future injuries. Once this is done, a spreadsheet is given to a team or an individual which can be used with trainers to prevent possible injuries that occur with training or competition.

Corrective Strategies:

The FMS can be applied at any fitness level and takes approximately 15 minutes to administer.
