Functional Movement Screen

What is Functional Movement Screen?

FMS is a scientifically based biomechanical screening and evaluation system established to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven basic movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality. By evaluating these areas, functional limitations and asymmetries can be determined. It can be applied to athletes of all ages.

Why are Limitations and Asymmetries in Movement Patterns important?
If basic movement patterns deviate from normal, movement quality is impaired. As a result, asymmetries, dysfunction in the motor control mechanism, and impairments in proprioception and stabilization perception occur. Such losses reduce the benefits of therapeutic, functional or performance-enhancing exercises.

What are the benefits of fms evaluation and fms corrective exercises?

It contributes to the development of Functional and Athletic performance by detecting physical imbalances and weaknesses and offering solutions.

Helps reduce the risk of training and sports injuries.

Being a scientifically based and simple rating system, it allows accurate evaluation of the athlete's movement ability.

It allows coaches to prepare training programs for athletes' personal deficiencies.

Teaches coaches, exercisers, and athletes the difference between movement quality and quantity.

Provides physiotherapists, coaches, conditioners, personal trainers, and doctors with a proven and scientifically based perspective on current injury trends and prevention of non-contact injuries.

It helps coaches understand the relationships between movement asymmetries and micro-trauma and chronic injuries.

Fms is an analysis method that should be evaluated before all training programs and as a result, corrective exercises suitable for the individual are planned. Today, many scientific studies state that mobility status should be brought to the appropriate level before planning performance training.
