Functional movement screenings are basic guidelines of human mobility based on exercise philosophy and current research. A functional movement screening is a measurement system used to evaluate movement patterns that are necessary to everyday function. Screenings are performed to identify any functional limitations, asymmetries or abnormalities. Issues found through functional movement screening are complications that can alter or reduce the effects of physical therapy.
Functional movement screenings simplify the impact of movement. These screenings have streamlined treatment from the individual level to exercise professionals and physical therapists. Streamlining this process allows for better communication, evaluation, standardization, safety, and corrective strategies.
Each screening gives our physical therapists a better look into the health and mobility of our patients. With the addition of functional movement screenings, we have a better understanding of which treatments will work best for each client. Enhancing rehabilitation and wellness is an added incentive with functional movement screenings.
