Upcoming Conference: Recent Advances in Clinical Sports Medicine

Recent Advances in Clinical Sports Medicine Conference

Our office is proud to support the upcoming SOLD OUT event that aims to confer on the advances in clinical sports medicine.  Both Dr. Robert Armitage and Dr. Anthony McDougall will be in attendance at this industry specific conference as sponsors. Dr. Armitage is will be representing both our office and the Royal College of Chiropractic Sport Sciences.

Dr. McDougall will be demonstrating the values of utilizing the Functional Movement Screen as an assessment tool for sports motion. FMS  “is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.” (quoted from the FMS website)

Dr. McDougall introduced the Functional Movement Systems courses to Italy, becoming certified in both the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
