Progressive Approach to Injury Prevention

Targeting Pain Before It Happens

At Nelson Clinic and Rehabilitation Care in Willmar, MN, our skilled team of professionals utilizes the Functional Movement System, which is used in rehabilitation centers nationwide.
It is a progressive approach to injury treatment as its aim is to target musculoskeletal risks before injury happens. The FMS tells us what your baseline “normal” movement patterns look like, which in turn allows us to identify when something is off.

Functional Movement Screen

The Functional Movement Screen is a proactive way to manage injury risk. The FMS is an evaluation used on a patient who is not currently experiencing pain to determine the individual’s mobility, stability, and movement pattern. After the test, we will give you a corrective exercise plan based on your unique results. Your results will also act as a baseline that we can refer to when you are experiencing pain or discomfort down the road.

Selective Functional Movement Assessment

The Selective Functional Movement Assessment is the version of the FMS intended for patients with pain. It is designed to take a deep dive to determine why you are experiencing pain. We will look at your movement patterns in the upper and lower quadrants of your body to identify the cause of your pain and create a treatment plan based on your unique results. We promise to treat each and every patient with the specialized care they deserve!
