Postural Screening

Fit 6 Postural Screening

At Fit6, the basis of all our training begins with building a solid foundation. In order to achieve this, we must first assess our clients’ range of mobility. We do this using the Functional Movement Screen, an innovative system used to evaluate movement pattern quality.

The screen is comprised of seven fundamental movement patterns that require a balance of mobility and stability and place the individual in challenging positions where imbalances and limitations become noticeable.

The Functional Movement Screen provides an enhanced foundation for exercise and performance programming, allowing our Fit6 coaches to set progressive corrective strategies that help to improve the efficiency, durability, and performance of our clients.

What happens next?

Depending on the results of your screen, your comprehensive personalised corrective strategy may involve a combination of the following:

  • Personalised corrective mobility, stability and motor control exercise programme
  • Hands-on manual therapy, soft tissue and joint mobility work
  • Comprehensive fascial stretching programme based on ELDOA stretching
  • Advice on what exercises to avoid during the corrective phase
  • Advice on nutrition and lifestyle habits that may be contributing to the fundamental movement dysfunction

Our Fit6 coaches are fully trained using the FMS Pro, a system that allows us to create an online profile where you can access all the information relating to your personalised corrective strategy. You will have complete access to all the mobility, stability and motor control exercises, with full descriptions, pictures and video, so that you can always check you are doing them correctly, even when you’re doing them at home.

Your Fit6 coach will continually monitor your development, re-screening where necessary and redesigning and advancing your programme as you progress. As you improve certain fundamental movements, your corrective strategies will change in type and difficulty to reflect your improvement.
