FMS, SFMA & Y Balance

I became intrigued in the FMS, SFMA & Y Balance Test systems while watching a video interview between Dr. Greg Rose of the Titleist Performance Institute and Gray Cook, co-Founder of FMS and SFMA. The information and research behind the systems caught my attention and as a result I attended the FMS and SFMA seminars to obtain a more in depth knowledge. I then completed the Clinical Integration Mentorship for FMS. Everything simply made sense with finding a reproducible method of analyzing movement and using the proper rehabilitation behind it.

I am a Certified FMS Level 1 and SFMA Level 1 Practitioner and passionate about making a real difference for people to improve their movement, both in daily activity, sport and training. The prevention of injury and detection of imbalances and asymmetries is a key component of the screening.

What is a Selective Functional Movement Assessment?

We begin the SFMA with seven top-tier assessments. These tests are used to determine the breakouts we use to separate pain and dysfunction when possible, and will help identify movement patterns where exercise is indicated or contraindicated.

The SFMA navigates the musculoskeletal assessment when pain is present. It is helpful during the initial patient examination, although some acute problems make it impractical at the outset. Outside of exposing dysfunctional regions that may complicate the examination process, the SFMA offers a unique perspective for corrective exercise in a clinical setting.

What is Functional Movement Screen?

To put it simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS can identify functional limitations and asymmetries in the body. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training, physical conditioning, and distort body awareness.

The FMS generates a score of 0-21 which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns. We monitor the FMS score to track progress and identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.

About Class IV Laser Therapy

Class IV Laser Therapy is advanced pain relief, and is available now at West Coast Family Chiropractic!

As of February 2016, we are the only Chiropractic clinic in Western Australia that offers Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy technology from LiteCure Medical.

Class IV Laser Therapy offers you a non-surgical option that truly has the power to eliminate or significantly reduce your pain.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy works by flooding the tissues with photons, energising the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain. Treatments take just a few minutes, however the therapeutic effect continues to soothe and heal long after you leave the clinic.

Please contact us to see if this exciting new technology is right for you!

What is the Y Balance Test?

As part of the Functional Movement Systems, the Y Balance Test is a thoroughly researched, easy way to test a person’s risk for injury as well as demonstrate functional symmetry. When the results of the Y Balance test are entered into the Move2Perform software you get your client’s personalized injury risk and peer performance measure according to age, gender, and sport/activity.

Move2Perform is a movement measurement and analysis tool that identifies deficits and risk of injury. Move2Perform products have been studied with overwhelmingly positive results, published in peer reviewed literature, and adopted by the US military and professional sports teams internationally.
