In this episode, I had two amazing researchers, Dr. Meghan Warren (epidemiologist/physical therapist from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute, and research specialist/athletic trainer, Dr. Monica Lininger from NAU, who extensively researched the Functional Movement Screen and movement screens in general. Movement screens can be incredibly useful clinical tools, especially depending on patient population (for athletes who may need a relatively objective test to view their movement quality from), but they also have some limitations. In this episode, we cover what movement screens are useful for, how they maybe shouldn’t be used, as well as the potential impact of asymmetries as more predictive of injury than low scores on a movement screen.
