FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREEN

Summit Chiropractic & Physical Therapy is proud to offer multiple clinicians certified to perform FMS™ screens.

What is FMS™? It is a screen designed to help predict injury.
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is the product of an exercise philosophy known as Functional Movement Systems. This exercise philosophy and corresponding set of resources is based on sound science, years of innovation, and current research.

Put simply, the FMS™ is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS™ readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.

The FMS™ generates a score which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to corrective exercises designed to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

Screens are free of charge and take 20 minutes to complete.
