Functional Movement Screen - Level 1

THE MOVEMENT EXPERIENCE

UPDATED COURSE!

 

AC Milan (ITA) Bayern Munich (GER), Borussia Dortmund (GER), Ajax Amsterdam (NED), Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers and many more Premier League clubs have already taken the lead!

Your journey into movement begins here. Movement is the universal language of human expression. Understanding the how and why of moving well helps us aspire to move often. Welcome to the Movement Experience.

FMS uses objective and validated standards to check the movement baseline and build foundations for lifelong movement success. Therefore, certified professionals can discover the best opportunities to improve movement and identify how to train with purpose and precision in order for individuals to achieve their fitness, sports performance or return from injury goals.

FMS is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality in individuals with no current pain complaint or known musculoskeletal injury.

These movement patterns are designed to provide observable performance of basic loco motor, manipulative and stabilizing movements by placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility and motor control is not utilized.

The core focus of the movement screen is to emphasize movement quality over quantity, and to identify any movement deficiencies or limitations. Since the body is complex in nature and operates as a system, it is necessary to address movement patterns as a whole, rather than evaluating isolated joint measurements when trying to determine inefficiencies. The movement screen is an applicable tool that should be used when determining an appropriate exercise program for any individual.

VI. Q&A 


The FMS simplifies the concept of movement and its impact on the body. Its streamlined system has benefits for everyone involved - individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians.

Communication - The FMS utilizes simple language, making it easy for individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians to communicate clearly about progress and treatment.

Evaluation - The screen effortlessly identifies asymmetries and limitations, diminishing the need for extensive testing and analysis.

Standardization - The FMS creates a functional baseline to mark progress and provides a means to measure performance.

Safety - The FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. It also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.

Corrective Strategies - The FMS can be applied at any fitness level, simplifying corrective strategies of a wide array of movement issues. It identifies specific exercises based on individual FMS scores to instantly create customized treatment plans.

Learning objectives:

  • Describing key principles to support the importance of movement screens.
  • Explaining the role of mobility, motor control, and functional patterns in fundamental movement.
  • Using the Functional Movement Screen instructions and procedures.
  • Distinguishing between correct screening techniques and common mistakes.
  • Applying the scoring criteria for consistent and reliable screen results.
  • Developing exercise selection and programs using the FMS.
  • Explaining the purpose and application of corrective exercise.

Benefits of The FMS and Exercise Strategies:

  • Improves functional and athletic performance
  • Helps to reduce the potential for training and sports injuries
  • Provides a simple grading system to assess athlete/client movement
  • Can be easily utilized in both the athletic/sports medicine and general fitness professionals
  • Identifies physical imbalances or weaknesses
  • Rehabilitates imbalances and strengthens weaknesses with simple corrective exercises
  • Allow trainers to better individualize training programs for greater athlete/client results
  • Teaches the trainer and athlete/client to Identify the difference between movement quality and movement quantity.
  • Allows athletic trainers, strength and conditioning specialist, personal trainers and physical therapists to identify current injury trends and stats as they relate to the prevention of non-contact injuries.
  • Allows trainers to Identify potential cause and effect relationships of mirco-trauma as well chronic injuries in relation to movement asymmetries.
