The Functional Movement Screen

 

Have you ever wondered if you were safe to participate in intramural sports or recreational activity? Have you wondered how likely you are to get injured while participating in athletics? The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) designed by Cook and Burton is a series of seven tests based on foundational movements necessary for every day activity to help determine the likelihood of injury with recreational activity. Scores of 14 or less on a 21 point scale have indicated increased risk for injury.(1) Let the experts at Active PT help assess if you’re safe to participate in recreational activity and develop a program to help you safely and effectively compete in athletics.
