Effects of functional correction training on injury risk of athletes: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Functional correction training based on FMS™ may improve the functional patterns of athletes and it may reduce the risk of sports injury, but the true effect is likely to be different from the estimate of the effect. Expand
The Effects of Number of Fire Dispatches and Other Situational Factors on Voluntary Exercise Training Among Korean Firefighters: A Multilevel Logistic Regression Analysis
The main findings indicate that the number of fire dispatches is a key factor affecting ET participation among firefighters, and the other situational factors also play a role. Expand


Two- and 3-dimensional knee valgus are reduced after an exercise intervention in young adults with demonstrable valgus during squatting.
The intervention reduced MKD and 3D knee valgus during a DLS and increased ankle range of motion, which might have limited the ability to observe changes in hip strength. Expand
Body Mass Index As a Predictor of Firefighter Injury and Workers' Compensation Claims
This study addresses a high-priority area of reducing firefighter injuries and workers' compensation claims by determining the relationship between lifestyle variables including body mass index and filing a workers' Compensation claim due to firefighter injury. Expand
Efficacy of Functional Movement Screening for Predicting Injuries in Coast Guard Cadets
Functional movement screening demonstrated moderate prognostic accuracy for determining injury risk among female Coast Guard cadets but relatively low accuracy among male cadets. Expand

Functional Movement Screen Scores in a Group of Running Athletes
This study provided mean values for the FMS in a cohort of long-distance runners that can be used as a reference for comparing FMST scores in other runners who are screened with this tool. Expand
Prediction of injury by limited and asymmetrical fundamental movement patterns in american football players.
The results of this study suggest that fundamental movement patterns and pattern asymmetry are identifiable risk factors for time-loss injury during the preseason in professional football players. Expand
An Acute Bout of Self-Myofascial Release Increases Range of Motion Without a Subsequent Decrease in Muscle Activation or Force
In conclusion, an acute bout of SMR of the quadriceps was an effective treatment to acutely enhance knee joint ROM without a concomitant deficit in muscle performance. Expand
Functional movement screen and aerobic fitness predict injuries in military training.
This study investigated associations between injuries and individual components of the Marine Corps physical fitness test (PFT), self-reported exercise and previous injury history, and Functional Movement Screen (FMS) scores to determine what combination of PFT and FMS tests are most suitable for predicting injuries.

Functional fitness improvements after a worksite-based yoga initiative.
Findings indicate that participants benefited from yoga, as significant improvements were noted in the Functional Movement Screen, a seven item test that measures functional fitness and perceived stress. Expand
