Functional Movement Screening (FMS)

Dear Neil/Trevor

Following a visit to your clinic recently I underwent the FMS (Functional Movement Screening) program. The session was extremely educational and thought provoking. I found Trevor to be an excellent addition to your team giving me sound advice and fully explaining the whole procedure. The report emailed to me (on the same evening!) was brilliant.

I have subsequently adapted my training plan to suit my strengths/weaknesses to allow me to concentrate on certain muscles and therefore massively reducing the risk of injuries.

Another first class service delivered by Platinum PPT.

Many Thanks

Graeme

 

 

I was first introduced to Trevor when I went to see Neil for the first time. After a few sessions with Neil in August to help me with a foot 'stress dislocation' I was starting to run again without any pain – this pain had been going on since February.

I then heard and read about the Functional Movement Screening. I mentioned it to Neil and he thought it would be a good idea. Yes I could run again but I was always wondering if it was the way I was running that might affect my foot problems.

I booked in for a session with Trevor with anticipation; I hadn't a clue what Functional Movement was about. Straight away Trevor put me at ease, explained what we were going to do and gave clear instructions and demonstrated throughout the screening that he knew exactly what was happening and being observed.

I did a variety of tests including squatting, lunging, balancing and more. After the session, Trevor gave me a quick rundown on what he had observed and thoroughly went through the exercises that I should be doing. He explained that although this was a quick result a detailed report would follow. I thought the quick result was really good anyway and couldn't believe that I had been there an hour.

I received my full report the next day and it was very thorough, interesting and informative. It showed that there were a few underlying causes which may relate to my foot problem.

I found the test very enjoyable and felt at ease throughout. I knew if I had any problems or queries that I could contact Trevor who was more than happy to help. In fact I had a couple of questions and when I went to Platinum Physio for a seminar session I saw Trevor and asked if I could query a couple of points. It was not a problem at all, we discussed a couple more exercises and I know that if I have any more queries I could contact him again.

I would fully recommend the Functional Movement Screening, you can learn a lot about your body including your strengths and weaknesses and hopefully I can stay injury free from now on.
