Functional Movement Systems involves both Functional Movement Screening (FMS) and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). These two systems are designed to assess full body movement patterns. The tests involved in these assessments help the doctor determine what area of the body is compensating for an injured or improperly moving joint. Specific corrective exercises are prescribed for the patient based off the outcomes of the FMS or SFMA. The patients will be given specific exercises to be performed in the office under the supervision of one of the doctors or other trained personnel.
The patients will also be trained in home rehabilitation. FMS and SFMA allow the doctor to treat the underlying cause of dysfunction for the patient. Through the use of these techniques, we will not just treat the site of pain, we will uncover the root of the problem and correct the dysfunction.
