Functional Movement Screening Course Ireland

CPD Award in Functional Athletic Screening & Reconditioning

If you want to further enhance your fitness qualification and open new areas of assessment, look no further than the CPD Award in Functional Athletic Screening & Reconditioning at the National Sports College.

What is Functional Athletic Screening?

Functional Athletic Screening is a grading system created to assess and document functional movement patterns.  By assessing these patterns, functional limitations and asymmetries are readily identified.  Basic movement pattern limitations can reduce the effects of functional training and distort proprioception.  The goal of this CPD programme is to introduce trainers and therapists to the benefits of utilizing this orthopedic screening in order to reduce potential injury from training.  F.A.S.R is equally effective in rehabilitation as well as conditioning because it targets the weak link.

At the heart of the system is the Functional Athletic Screen score and the movement patterns, which are directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.  In order to fully benefit from this programme, participants should have a very strong knowledge or anatomical movement and resistance training.
