Selective functional movement Screen & Functional movement screen (SFMS & FMS)
Gray Cook, FMS;
"Do you know the number one risk factor for injury? Yep, previous injury—too many individuals are cleared for activity before they are free from the vital signs that demonstrate lack of competency—resulting from poor adaptation, previous injury or poor environmental choices. Current systems are not working."
SFMA and FMS are a powerful paradigm shift in exercise and rehabilitation.
Are you in pain? Do you always get injured?
Maybe your pain area isn't your main problem, what is the cause not source of your pain?
"The SFMA is the movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess 7 fundamental movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain. The assessment provides an efficient method to systematically find the cause of symptoms, not just the source, by logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root cause as either a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem.
This systematic process allows clinicians to clearly match their intervention to the main problem of the patient. This model efficiently integrates the concepts of altered motor control, the neurodevelopmental perspective, and regional interdependence into musculoskeletal practice." FMS
"We use the SFMA to shorten the rest of our exam so we don’t have to do all that ROM testing. It’s like a bull’s-eye on what we need to focus on." FMS
Endorsement of FMS;
“When it comes to identifying the root cause of any movement dysfunction or painful pattern, there is no one better than Gray Cook. His Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is the most thorough but simple method to help you pinpoint your clients' primary dysfunctions. We have been using the SFMA at Titleist with all our players for the past year, and the results are unbelievable.”
