Abstract

The Functional Movement Screening (FMS) was designed as a tool to identify compensatory movement patterns, often used with athletes. The purpose of this study was to find the relationship between FMS scores and injuries throughout the course of a Division III men’s and women’s Varsity soccer season. The effect of intervention with corrective exercises in improving total composite scores was also assessed. A pretest-posttest randomized control group design was used in which subjects (n=28, 50% male) completed the FMS Tests. FMS testing was performed 8 weeks apart. During the 8 weeks, subjects tracked injury occurrences and treatment subjects completed exercises 3 times weekly. No difference was found within subject total scores between pre and post testing (p=0.47). Treatment was not effective in improving FMS composite scores compared to the control group (p=0.13). Subjects reporting injuries experienced a greater change in total scores (p=0.05). Neither the course of a soccer season nor the treatment showed substantial change in FMS scores. FMS testing has the potential to identify those at risk for injury, however, it was not fully supported by this study.
