functional movement screenings

Functional movement screens, or FMS, can be implemented within an individual’s wellness program or skilled physical therapy care.  The FMS system was developed by Dr. Gray Cook, a physical therapist, in order to establish a “standard” for proper functional body movement patterns that should be occurring along the wellness spectrum.  Application of the FMS helps physical therapists identify areas within the human body that can be immobile, hypermobile or unstable – it is the foundation of human movement.
