Whiteboard Talks: Misconceptions About the FMS In Research
The FMS is a movement screen, not an injury screen. It is not intended to be an injury prediction tool on its own. Injury risk is multi-factorial.
When the FMS is considered with the additional risk factors, it can be a very useful tool. The FMS is a highly specific screen – if you are positive on it, you have higher risk of injury. But if you are negative that does not mean you will not get hurt.
Dr. Phil Plisky explains the difference between sensitivity and specificity of the FMS and how the FMS is most effectively used in research.
