Spa Members: Complimentary Functional Movement Screening
1 June, 2019 - 31 August, 2019 / Spa Members
Enjoy a complimentary 25 minute Functional Movement Screening before 31 August 2019.
Take advantage of a free 25 minute Functional Movement Screening (FMS) at Sequoia this summer.
The FMS is a tool used to identify asymmetries which result in functional movement deficiencies. The FMS aims to identify imbalances in mobility and stability during seven fundamental movement patterns. These movement patterns are designed to provide observable performance of basic locomotor, manipulative and stabilizing movements by placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility and motor control is not utilized. Once these deficiencies have been identified through the FMS, a program of corrective exercises is then developed with the goal of preventing musculoskeletal injuries.
The seven following movement patterns are scored from 0-3 points, with the sum creating a score ranging from 0-21 points.
1. Deep Squat
2. Hurdle Step
3. In-line Lunge
4. Active Straight-leg Raise
5. Trunk Stability Push-up
6. Rotary Stability
7. Shoulder Mobility
