Description

While much data is available regarding Functional Movement Screen (FMS) scores in corrective exercise programs and injury prevention, limited data exists regarding comparisons between movement patterns in various sports. The purpose of this study was to review FMS scores to find any mobility and stability differences between several NCAA Division III sports. In this study, 83 healthy student-athletes, from four different sports teams, performed a battery of tests to measure physical capabilities prior to the beginning of their competitive season. All participating student-athletes performed the FMS, which is a tool used to gauge fundamental movement patterns including range of motion, stability, and balance, to measure movement asymmetries and limitations.
