The FMS (Functional Movement Screen) looks at fundamental movements, motor control within movements, and a competence of basic movement patterns.
Its job is to determine movement deficiency and uncover asymmetry.
With a thorough evaluation of your strength, range of motion, and posture, we can tailor an individual exercise routine specific to your needs by identifying areas that may lead to injury, and strengthening areas that will add power to your game.
