Calling All Athletes: Free Functional Movement Screen at Vida Integrated Health
Saturday, September 19, 2013

Vida Integrated Health on Capitol Hill launches a fun and informative free series of events this month, so if you're interested in getting a Functional Movement Screen (FMS) reserve your spot at Wine + Wisdom-Functional Movement Screening. Used by athletes around the world including the Seahawks, the prestigious Mayo Clinic, and the Rehab and Sports Medicine team at Vida, the FMS screen identifies functional limitations and asymmetries within the body through a ranking and grading system that documents seven movement patterns. The FMS generates a score, then used to target problems, prevent future injuries and track progress.

Each participant in Vida's Wine + Wisdom Functional Movement Screening event gets tested and receives a free 15-20 minute follow-up consultation to go over their test scores and recommendations. 

Space is limited. To learn how to reserve a spot, visit here.
