In our Sept 6th edition of I-MOVE, we talked about Mobility and how at MOVE, we make it a top priority to focus our efforts and programing on addressing any mobility restrictions you may have. Once you have made inroads at improving your mobility we can then introduce exercises which are designed to help you govern that new-found movement.
Why do we use the FMS at MOVE? Before we can answer WHY, we probably should explain WHAT is the FMS. The FMS is the Functional Movement Screen. The screen was first used in 1998 as a tool to help physical therapist Gray Cook and his team of health professionals rate and rank the movement patterns of high school athletes.
