The Functional Movement System (FMS) was developed by Gray Cook, a renowned physical therapist who, like many of our Doctors, is an APTA Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS). The FMS is “a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function,” and it allows our Doctors to fully assess whether there are any underlying limitations or asymmetries in your body’s movements.
You can read more about the FMS here. Our team has used this tool with professional, collegiate, and local sports teams and athletes, to identify all areas of imbalance or weakness, and build a sport- or activity-specific program focused on injury prevention. We have several APTA board certified orthopedic and sports specialists on our team who have extensive education in this area!
