Stuart McGill, Gray Cook Video — Stuart McGill Functional Movement Screen Review — Stuart McGill and Craig Liebenson Video
Today, a movement-based approach is used by a wide array of professions and occupations, including physical therapists, personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, and athletes.
One of the most popular assessment tools that has come from this movement-based approach is Gray Cook and Lee Burton’s Functional Movement Screen (FMS).
The FMS and the SFMA, the related medical-based assessment tool, have gained popularity due to their simplicity and ease-of-use. They allow many professionals to screen and assess their clients’ movement patterns, and make subsequent decisions on further assessments, rehabilitation or programming.
Though the FMS and SFMA have been both been the subject of academic research for years, there still remains a lot of debate and controversy behind the validity and value of a quick, simple and general tool like the FMS, especially for injury prediction.
In particular, many people have highlighted a supposed difference in approach to screening, assessment and spine stabilization between Gray Cook and Stuart McGill, one of the world’s leading low back experts.
Craig Liebenson realized this, and proposed for these two giants in the field to present their approaches, clarify their positions and critically analyze the FMS.
The result is what you’ll find inside this DVD, Assessing Movement: A Contrast in Approaches & Future Directions.
In the DVD—
- Gray explains the principles, intent and incorrect assumptions people make about the FMS
- Stuart reviews the literature surrounding the FMS, and highlights areas of agreement and disagreement
- Stuart outlines his approach to assessments in Developing the Ideal Screen or Assessment
- Gray demonstrates the FMS tests, and Stuart demonstrates some of the assessment tools he uses with clients
- Craig discusses the history of human movement in medicine and patient care
- Gray and Stuart take questions about both their methods
- …and much more
