In this free 30-minute online workshop you'll learn about the Functional Movement Screen and how it can correct movement imbalances. The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a screening tool used to evaluate seven fundamental movement patterns in individuals with no current pain complaint or musculoskeletal injury. The FMS is not intended to diagnose orthopedic problems but rather to demonstrate opportunities for improved movement in individuals. The screen is designed to place an individual in extreme positions where movement deficits become noticeable if appropriate stability and mobility are not used. Even though individuals are performing an activity or sport at a high level, it has been observed that many of these same individuals are limited in fundamental movement. This leads to the use of compensatory movements in order to achieve or maintain the level of performance needed for the activity. The inefficient use of compensation during movement will lead to poor biomechanics that limit gains in performance and reduces the body’s ability to remain adaptable and durable against the risks of being involved in the activity or sport.

About The Speaker
Sarah , SPTA
Sarah Liu was born and raised in Taiwan. She, later on, went to pursue a higher education at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia where she took all her pre-med classes and graduated with a Bachelor's in Human Health. She then moved back to Taiwan to work at various start-up companies, but still had a passion to work in the medical field. She first became interested in physical therapy when attending physical therapy treatment in Taiwan for her shoulder and saw how much it differed from the United States. Physical therapy seemed like it was just an emerging field in Taiwan and not as pronounced as it was in the states.
She is currently attending Stanbridge University in Irvine as a student Physical Therapist Assistant to pursue her dreams of introducing American physical therapy techniques to Taiwan through social media. For fun, she enjoys traveling, hiking, snorkeling, and finding any chance to be outside with nature.

What People Are Saying
Working at the desk all day and using the computer mouse has caused a bunch of shoulder and neck problems for me so I thought I would look into physical therapy.
I ended up finding Rising Sun and I'm very happy with my choice. My physical therapist was very friendly and knowledgeable and puts a lot of work into each of our sessions to fix me up.
