Pre-participation screening: the use of fundamental movements as an assessment of function - part 1.
TLDR
The intent of this two part series is to introduce the concept of the evaluation of fundamental movements, whether it is the FMS(™) system or a different system devised by another clinician.
Pre-participation screening: the use of fundamental movements as an assessment of function - part 2.
TLDR
It is hoped that the clinician will recognize the need for the assessment of fundamental movements, critique current and develop new methods of functional assessment, and begin to provide evidence related to the assessmentof fundamental movements and the ability to predict and reduce injury.

Interrater Reliability of the Functional Movement Screen
TLDR
The FMS can be confidently used to assess the movement patterns of athletes and to make decisions related to interventions for performance enhancement, and the FMS may assist in identifying athletes at risk for injury.
Functional movement screening: the use of fundamental movements as an assessment of function - part 1.
TLDR
The intent of this two part series is to present the concepts associated with screening of fundamental movements, whether it is the FMS™ system or a different system devised by another clinician.
Functional movement screening: the use of fundamental movements as an assessment of function-part 2.
TLDR
A fundamental screen of the movement system should be incorporated into pre-participation screening and return to sport testing in order to determine whether an athlete has the essential movements needed to participate in sports activities at a level of minimum competency.
Modifiable risk factors predict injuries in firefighters during training academies.
TLDR
Injury in firefighters during academy can be predicted by baseline measures of musculoskeletal movement and physiology, and the deep squat and push up component of the FMS were statistically significant predictors of injury status.
Mobility Screening for the Core
TLDR
A consideration in addition to strength when designing core-training programs is core mobility, because the core must be not only stable but also mobile to accommodate ranges of motion required for sport.
Mobility Screening for the Core, Part 3: Implications for Athletic Low Back Pain
TLDR
The aim of this column is to introduce the concept of local stabilization, its role in low back pain, and the integration of core-mobility testing and training into the treatment and prevention of nonspecific low backPain in athletes.
Mobility Screening for the Core: Interventions
TLDR
This issue provides mobilization and exercise recommendations that can be employed to correct functional-movement deficits before participation in traditional core-training programs begins.
