Functional Movement Screen


Functional Movement Screen(FMS) is a system of evaluating movements that are key to normal functioning. FMS can be used to assess individuals at any fitness level. The patient is asked to perform a series of standardized movement patterns, which the Physical Therapist observes and scores. By using the FMS, the therapist can quickly identify movement asymmetries, including limiting and dangerous motions that can lead to injuries. The therapist uses this information to assess and determine problem areas and develop corrective exercise interventions that are unique and specific to each person.

Professionals using FMS participate in training to become certified. APTS is pleased to have Physical Therapists who are FMS-certified on our staff.
