The screen led us right to the problem. Chronic Hamstring Strains in an NFL Wide Receiver FMS Finding — a one score in rotary stability and a three in rotary mobility This athlete was in a potential career-ending situation after sustaining hamstring strains each of the previous two seasons, resulting in significant lost game time. The new FMS does not contain the older rotary mobility test, however I often do the test when I have an individual who complains of back pain. The combination of poor rotary stability and excessive rotary mobility is the perfect storm of back pain.

The easiest way to assess ankle mobility versus ankle flexibility is to look at the range of the athlete’s active and passive dorsiflexion. In order to fully understand how this works, we need to enter the world of assessment. Even if you don’t use the movement screen, as a bare minimum assessment, an athlete should perform an overhead squat. If the athlete can overhead squat to a parallel position with the toes pointed forward, you can safely proceed to any squat variation. Athletes who cannot overhead squat to a position with the thighs parallel to the floor are deficient in either ankle, hip or hamstring flexibility.

Another thing that may surprise you is an asymmetry of the shoulders. A third surprise might occur when they try to slide overhead. Many people will immediately shrug, indicating a dominance of the upper trap. The keys to the wall slide: • Scapulae are retracted and depressed. • Hands and wrists are flat against the wall; the back of both hands must touch the wall. • During the slide up, have the client press gently into the wall with the forearms. Stop your client at the point of discomfort. The anterior shoulder will release and ROM will increase over time.
