Functional Movement Screening (FMS)
Functional movement screening is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. As part of your initial evaluation, FMS is utilized to quickly identify dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. This ultimately works towards turning your weaknesses into strengths.
Functional movement screening is performed by a licensed physical therapist who is trained in FMS. Your therapist will take you through the screen and design specific, corrective exercises to reduce your risk for injury. The goal is essentially to identify and eliminate your weakest link in order to prevent injury and to optimize your performance.
Running is one of the most popular athletic activities in the world. There are probably more runners than there are participants in any other sport.
Running is also the most dangerous sport, because compared to other athletes, 2 out of 3 runners get injured every year. But it doesn’t have to be that way, you can minimize potential of injures and maximize your efforts by simply learning how to run.
Proper technique is the cornerstone of every sports discipline or any other activity that involves human movement: dancing, ballet, martial arts, tennis, etc. Running is no different. So in order to run faster, run longer, avoid injuries & reduce impact on your body – you need to improve your technique.
