Mercy Sports Medicine Sport Enhancement Programs

New for Summer 2016: Sport Clinics! See the information below.

With each change of season come familiar sounds from athletic fields across the landscape: coaches’ whistles, thump of a foot against a soccer ball, pop of bat hitting a softball, whack of a club hitting a golf ball and smack of shoulder pads. For many kids from grade school through college, it’s time to embark on the challenge of starting a new sport or improving their skills from last season. For many adults, it’s time to improve their game of golf, try a new sport or focus on fitness. Mercy Sports Medicine specialists can help you improve your performance and prepare for the next season.

Functional Movement Screenings (FMS)

We offer functiona movement screenings (FMS) plus corrective exercises, power testing, vertical testing and speed testing.

Put 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 readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness that affect sport performance.

The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, 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.

Exercise professionals monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.

Finding this “weakness” using FMS can help you as a coach better your athlete and improve performance season after season. Simple corrective patterns can be tailored by a specialist to help the athlete reach maximum potential. In other words, by balancing MOVEMENT on both sides of the body, you will boost performance from that athlete. You will create a more powerful, agile, and complete athlete.

Cost: $10 per athlete per session, including FMS screening.
