What is FMS?
Functional Movement Screens (FMS) are becoming more popular in all areas of exercise, from strength and conditioning, to physical therapy and rehab. Simply put, the FMS allows for a person to have their movement patterns ranked and graded compared to ideal function. Similar to when Dr. Silverman prescribes custom orthotics to alleviate a foot condition like flatfeet, we analyze the inconsistencies in your movement patterns and institute corrective techniques to fix the problem. By ensuring you are conducting optimal movement patterns while exercising and during your daily routine, your body will wear down less quickly and you’ll be less prone to injury.
