Functional Movement Screen Certified

After going to the Selective Functional Movement Assessment Certification Course 2 weeks ago, I have been reading a lot about Gray Cook and his other work, the Functional Movement Screen.


Since I am recovering from a right hip labral repair and femoral head osteoplasty, I decided that I would spend a few hours today studying up and getting certified in the FMS.  I think this is a great pre-participation screening tool that everyone should probably have done to them a couple of times a year.  It only takes a few minutes and can be completed with minimal equipment and can help screen the potential for injury (score of less than 14) or presence of a current problem (pain during testing).


The next step is to do a Selective Functional Movement Assessment if painful or find some corrective exercises that might help some of the deficits found on the FMS.  Since most people have several deficits, there is always something to improve.
