Pre Season Training

  • Are you returning to sport after time out (or the Winter)?

  • Have you ongoing injuries that just wont go away?

  • Do you want to get a head start  (from everyone else) with your pre-season training?

Before you start back into your training why not have a Function and Mobility Screening done to give you an insight into what areas you need to place more emphasis on and what techniques or exercises would help improve your preseason fitness.

Function and Mobility Screening  th4ZF94EUA

Functional screening is a process widely used in most sports, at all levels, to provide both athlete and coach with an indication of joint mobility, muscular symmetry and stability and details of the motor pattern present.

The Function and Mobility Screen used here in PhysioFit Kildare is an adapted form of the widely known Functional Movement Screen (FMS). There are 10 tests as opposed to the 7 used in the FMS test. These tests identify movement competency for strength, stability and mobility. Along with the 7 tests used in the FMS, a further 3 dynamic movement tests are also included. These additional tests incorporate movement patterns represented in various sports. Each test is graded through a 3 point scoring system (similar to the FMS test) and a total out of 30 is given at the end. Each of the 10 tests have a different purpose and identifying component. The higher the score the better the function and mobility of the athlete.

The Function and Mobility Screen is aimed to identify asymmetries and areas of weakness in the athlete and then give concise instructions, exercises and advice on how to alter these issues and better the biomechanics of the limb involved.
