Functional Movement Screening //

Functional movement screening is a new phenomenon which incorporates 7 functional tests. These tests identify an athletes’ area of weakness and those at a potential risk of injury. By identifying and correcting movement dysfunction, an athlete’s potential risk of injury can be greatly reduced and athletic performance enhanced.

This testing can be carried out in the pre-season, mid-season and/or post-season to monitor athlete progress throughout the entire competitive season.

Barrow Clinic caters for both group & club memberships.
