Looking to improve performance or gain mobility in sports and everyday activities?
Before and after an initial massage therapy session, our experienced staff performs a Functional Movement Screening (FMS), which provides accurate information to consistently offer a high level of care. As the owner of the movements, YOU can enjoy performing at a higher level in YOUR activity of choice.
What is the FMS?
The FMS is a powerful tool that identifies the weak link in a movement pattern.
This process allows our massage therapists to see symmetry and balance of movements as opposed to static postures or individual muscles. This process will give individuals or athletes greater movement efficiency, which leads to improved performance and decreased risk of injury.
How does it work?
The FMS takes about ten minutes to complete seven movements, three times each. These seven movements are scored from 0-3 based on symmetry, balance, and range of movement. Each movement demonstrates a specific joint's ability to maintain either stability or mobility. In some cases one hip will be asked to remain stable while the opposite hip flexes. A low score indicates a lack of symmetry and balance in movement and an increased risk of injury from general exercise. A higher score indicates healthy core strength and efficient muscle firing sequences in movement.
