Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
The FMS is an assessment protocol that test one's ability to complete 7 different bodyweight movements and scores them in according to the quality of movement. It was created in 2001 to improve the overall scope of performance, fitness, rehabilitation and management of injury risk in active individuals. It was the intent of the founders of FMS to provide a better system for sports medicine, fitness and strength and conditioning professionals to identify movement dysfunction as well as improve communication between the professions (FMS Handbook, 2015).
The 7 movements are:
Active Straight-Leg Raise
Trunk Stability Push-Up
