Functional Movement Screen and Y Balance Test


 “Like a Crystal Ball to Prevent Future Injuries”

The most common causes of injuries include:

  • Improper movement patterns which cause stress on joints over time
  • Lack of mobility required to perform movements to their full range of motion
  • Lack of neuromuscular control over your muscles to prevent injury.

What if you could know your limitations before you load, before your sprint, before you swing that club?

You can.  Whether you are looking for a clearance report to go back to sports or insight on why you keep getting injured, our combined FMS/YBT test delivers a repeatable screen that tests mobility and nueromuscular control.

Functional Movement Screen

The FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.  It provides a scoring system for providing early warning of specific movement problems as well as tracking progress. This scoring system links the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

Y Balance Test

The YBT provides a risk profile for participating in certain activities (soccer, running, CrossFit, etc.) by measuring closed chain movement dynamics in your hips and shoulders (in essence is your hip and shoulder movement sufficient and is it even.)  The test is highly useful for providing concrete measurements for determining the effectiveness of corrective exercises techniques and/or Muscle Activation sessions.

Movement Report

You’ll get a 2-page report clearly delineating your mobility and movement pattern status.   Plus we’ll do a recorded video overview our observations so you’ll have a record of everything we learned about your mobility and movement patterns.  The report and video will provide you a risk factor analysis as to your likelihood of injury for entering a particular sport (like group based CrossFit or Orange Theory classes.)  You’ll also get our recommendation as to what type of corrective therapy is most effective such as: our Mobility training, corrective exercises, MAT, etc.
