Jon Torine Screening Football Players – Movement Competency for Football – Strength Coach for NFL
While not exactly a two-parter, this is the second of Jon Torine’s lectures on using the Functional Movement Screen with athletes, groups and patients; the first is his The Athlete Continuum. Jon Torine’s Fundamental Movement Competency for Football covers the use of the screen and the organization of corrective strategies through the various levels of stability.
“Screening gives us a system for exercise prescription, and that’s critical. Within a team framework—whether it’s high school, college, professional, a team of firefighters, a team of law enforcement or a military team—the screen allows us to create an objective system of integration and communication.
“When we look at previous injury, the risk for re-injury on a person with a previous injury is two to three times the initial injury risk. There is a two- to three-time higher chance you’re going to get hurt if you’ve had a previous injury. That’s risk.”~Jon Torine
