The following outlines the basics of the Functional Movement Screen, along with some of the compelling benefits it offers.
The Functional Movement Screen at Total Rebuild
What Is The Functional Movement Screen?
The FMS is a series of 7 movements that require a balance of mobility and stability.
Each movement is scored from 0 to 3:
0 = pain during movement
1 = failed movement pattern
2 = passed but with some compensations
3 = passed with no compensations
Think of it as a mini obstacle course, with the obstacle that gives you the most difficulty as the starting point for corrective training.
The positions and movements in the screen help magnify whatever difficulties exist, so a trained professional can easily identify them. Therein lies the beauty of the screen.
How does it help you? Wheres the benefit?
You go to the dentist for check ups, you book the car in for yearly testing, but people rarely think to give themselves a check up. Thats what this screen is, an opportunity to make sure your movement isn't creating problems elsewhere.
You might take the screen, and score high numbers across the board, Good for you and well done.
Or you might take it, identify an issue and be given the knowledge to start to correct it, and keep building a healthy body for life. Total Rebuild are here to be the team that helped you create that.
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) was developed in 1998 by Gray Cook and Lee Burton to rate and rank movement patterns in high school athletes.
Since then, the FMS has become a super important tool to help judge durability of athletes or weekend warriors. Huge in professional sport and military groups like The U.S. Navy Seals.
After seeing it in action a few years ago at a friends gym in Leeds, I have taken my time to get round to jumping on the FMS course, but recently got certified in Dublin.
The Functional Movement Screen is offered at Total Rebuild as part of your initial consultation on signing up, or as a standalone service for non members.
