What Is The Functional Movement Screen?
The Functional Movement Screen was developed by Gray Cook as a way to measure your ability to perform basic movement patterns and to identify weaknesses and asymmetries in the body.
Gray modified this into the Basic Movement Screen, a set of seven tests that require a balance of mobility and stability.
Using this information, customised training and rehab programmes can be used to improve overall sports performance as well as being an excellent injury prevention tool. The Movement Screen gives a good baseline of abilities and, through re-screening, provides a consistent measure of progress.
