FMS Evaluations

Here at Kiwi, we customize our treatment plans to fit a patient’s pain or musculoskeletal deficiencies. Often times, patients (and for that matter practitioners) aren’t sure where they are weak, exactly what hurts, or how to fix it.  Often Functional Movement Screens (FMS) can help provide answers. Functional Movement Screens were created to help identify physiological weak points or areas that can be improved. In a basic FMS Evaluation, seven functional body movements are performed, which are carefully observed and scored by our trainers. Using the FMS Screening, we can then customize a program tailored to our patient’s weaknesses or biological asymmetries. Thus, patients get a tailored PT exercise program, as oppose to a “one size fits all approach”. To read more about FMS Screening, visit their website here.
