Chapter Six: Functional Movement Screen Descriptions

The chapter used to cover the FMS will teach you the seven basic screens in detail, including where to stand, what to watch for during the movements and how to plan your modifications. You’ll get a description of each screen, the purpose of each, tips for testing, implications and photographs showing how to score each test.

In this clip from the FMS: Applying the Model to Real Life Examples DVD set, Gray discusses how to simplify the screen for populations who don’t move optimally.
