The FMS Mobility Conundrum: A Case Study
by Carson Boddicker on Oct 25th, 2010
The Functional Movement Screen has a unique continuum and sequence of correction generally beginning with enhancement of mobility via ASLR and SM work, if indicated. Nine times out of ten this has been the right answer and easily approachable. In most cases, it takes very few sessions to restore the pattern to a full, symmetrical pattern if I choose and execute the right soft tissue techniques and subsequent exercises. Generally, I bank on ...

Functional Movement Screen: A Part of A Balanced Assessment
by Carson Boddicker on Aug 9th, 2010
Many look at the FMS and for one reason or another want to "cleave" off tests. Likewise, many look for trends in groups, which I think can be better than nothing, but I begin to wonder that if trends and skipping tests let us see the whole picture. After all, the FMS, while a great tool, is only a part of a balanced assessment, so shortening it even further seems like a bad idea. There is a lot going on in 7 tests, but it may be difficult f...

Split Squatting the Right Way: Respecting the Assessment
by Carson Boddicker on Jun 3rd, 2010
I got an e-mail from a friend of mine today asking about a discussion he and one of his colleagues had this week concerning coaching the split squat. The athlete in question seemed to have an issue with proper hip extension and there was debate as to whether or not he was "hanging" on his hip flexor. Now this particular company uses the FMS liberally, but like many, it seems that there may be a disconnect between the application of the FMS re...

Product Review: Secrets of Primitive Patterns
by Carson Boddicker on Feb 16th, 2010
In the past several months it seems that the concept of primitive patterns and developmental kinesiology has taken hold in both the performance and rehabilitation communities. This popularity can be linked to the distribution of the Prague School's (and Dr. Kolar's) ideas and theories regarding antagonist co-activation, which has come about through extensive study of developmental kinesiology and includes reflexive creeping and turning over as w...
