FMS

Certified by the Functional Movement Systems company, Pack Physical Therapy can identify movement limitations and pinpoint pain in order to treat for better mobility.

The FMS consists of seven movement patterns which require mobility and stability.

The FMS is a tool used to identify asymmetries which result in functional movement deficiencies. It 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 are 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. In short – these movements help to show us where in your body you are experiencing weakness and imbalance so then we can create a personalized treatment to help your strength and mobility.
