Restore Functional Movement Faster with FMS

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a 7-step screening process that quickly allows us to evaluate any asymmetries and functional limitations in your body. This screening tool, which benefits patients at any fitness level, uses seven simple exercises to look at your range of motion, flexibility, joint mobility, strength, balance, and stability. We score each of these exercises to generate a Functional Movement Screen Score. This score provides a baseline that allows our physical therapists to gauge the rate of your recovery and a standardized means of measuring your performance over the course of your care.

How Avant Physical Therapy Uses Functional Movement Screens

This modern method of mobility screening allows our experienced physical therapists to identify each individual patient’s weaknesses, stability issues, and risk factors for injury. As a result, we can prepare personalized physical therapy sessions that allow a person to:

  • Recover quickly
  • Gain back necessary motor skills
  • Build strength in needed muscle groups
  • Increase functional strength needed for normal daily activities
  • Recover balance to reduce future risk of injury
  • Improve performance

This screening can benefit patients at any fitness level. The test also provides a baseline that allows our physical therapists to gauge the rate of your recovery and a standardized means of measuring your performance over the course of your care.
