Joints in the human body are designed to either provide stability or allow uninhibited mobility. There are a number of variables such as being in a seated position for an extended period of time, doing the same exercises repeatedly or a pre-existing injury that can change how your body functions. Gray Cook is a physical therapist and strength coach who helped create the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) in order to have a systematic method for identifying the inefficient movement patterns that could cause an injury. 

What does Gray Cook have in common with the TV show Moonshiners? You'll have to listen to find out!

The FMS is now used by professional football, military special operations units and fire departments as a tool to identify potential injuries before they happen. On this episode of All About Fitness Gray describes why he created the FMS and how it can be used to help eliminate the risk of injury. If you love to exercise but have experienced frequent injuries it could be due to a restricted movement pattern, the FMS can help you identify the restriction so you can determine the best exercises to help you optimize your performance.
