Functional Movement Screen

The Functional Movement Screen is used to evaluate the quality of 7 movement patterns commonly used in sport and fitness in individuals not currently experiencing pain.  It is designed to place the athlete in challenging positions to expose movement deficits.  Many individuals perform activity and sport at a high level, but are limited in their fundamental movement leading to compensation, limited gains in performance and increased risk of injury.

Segmental Functional Movement Assessment

The Segmental Functional Movement Assessment is a medical movement diagnosis system designed to quickly identify the source and potential causes of pain, and direct where detailed assessment and treatment should be focused.  The source of pain is not always the initial or perpetuating cause of pain.  That sore knee is often a result of compensation for tight ankles or weak hips! 

Y-Balance Test

The Y-Balance Test is used to ensure there is symmetry in motor control between sides once injury is resolved and/or healthy functional baseline movement is restored.  Asymmetry is one of the main risk factors for injury!  By identifying and resolving asymmetry, we give our athletes the best platform to build all aspects of sport performance and reduce future injury risk.
