Functional Movement Screening

Information Session: Thursday, February 21, 6:00 p.m.

The Functional Movement Screen (“FMS”) is a trouble detection system used by Marsh exercise specialists and Merz physical therapists to prevent injuries before they happen. The primary cause of injuries is neither weakness nor tightness, but rather muscle imbalance. At this informative talk, certified FMS specialist Dustin Burgemeister, MS, will discuss the seven fundamental movement patterns evaluated in a screening to identify limitations and muscle asymmetries. FMS helps your physical therapist and exercise specialist design a better exercise prescription for a strong and balanced musculature – key to effective movement and injury prevention.
