SFMA & FMS SCREENINGS
The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) offers a unique perspective for corrective exercise in a clinical setting and is designed to help your therapist detect deficiencies in movement and develop a treatment protocol geared toward choosing the best possible therapeutic exercises available.
TheFunctional Movement Screen (FMS) evaluates fundamental movements, motor control patterns, and competence of basic postural awareness. It will determine the greatest areas of movement deficiency, demonstrate limitations or asymmetries, and eventually correlate these with a possible adverse outcome. After this your therapist can create an exercise program that will strengthen these weaknesses and allow your body to build stability, strength, and mobility in order to prevent a possible injury.
We offer a unique running assessment service where runners of any skill level can come and have their running style analyzed to identify any alignment asymmetries that you might have. Our expert will evaluate your results and give advice on how to improve your running technique, make shoe recommendations, or fit you with customized orthotics to correct your form if indicated. Our expertise will help prevent the wear and tear that endurance running applies to your musculoskeletal system and keep you running safer, longer, and faster.
