Functional Movement Screen & Y Balance Tests

For our recent Master Class in Physiotherapy and Orthopaedics, Collins Place Physio’s resident authority in all things rehabilitation Conor Brennan presented to a group of 30 GP’s on the latest musculoskeletal screening tests that identify people who are at increased risk of injury during physical activity.

Conor is highly trained in utilising the Functional Movement Screen and the Y-Balance tests with his patients to identify individuals who are at risk of injury due to faulty movement patterns and left or right asymmetries.

Research has shown that people who score poorly on one or both of the FMS or Y Balance tests are four times more likely to injure themselves during their sporting endeavours.

From the results of the tests Conor can develop a program of corrective exercises to restore normal movement patterns thereby reducing the risk of injury during sport and exercise and increasing performance.

Please call the clinic on 9650 2220 to discuss the FMS and Y-Balance tests with Conor or schedule an appointment online for a screening.
