This in-depth analysis of functional movement, posture and performance will give us the information needed to create a specific plan of care for you to reach and surpass your goals.
Our strength is in the attention to details.
Screens are valuable because they provide information at the start of the season before workloads are ramped up to full throttle.
We will analyze possible biomechanical faults, mobility limitations, and muscular insufficiencies that contributed to your injury. Using our results, we can create a custom rehabilitation program that addresses these issues and targets a solution.
How Do We Do It?
Functional Movement Screen: The Functional Movement Screen is a series of basic human movement patterns used by sports medicine professionals for athletes and the general population alike. Research has shown that asymmetries and major deficiencies discovered in the FMS will lead to increased pain and injury as well as compromise the body’s ability to move efficiently. Our program is designed to reverse these dysfunctional movement patterns through corrective exercise techniques.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment: The SFMA performed by physical therapists to measure the status of movement-pattern related pain and dysfunction using bodily regional interdependent movement to aggravate symptoms, expose the limitations and dysfunctions.
It uses a series of movements to identify possible dysfunctions. The purpose of the SFMA is to assess the quality of the movements; it is not about how many repetitions the person can perform, but rather the quality of the movement pattern. The SFMA helps to expose possible asymmetries and pathological movements patterns, as the root cause of a painful problem. This will in turn, help guide a treatment plan to restore pain-free movement and function.
