Functional Movement Screening

Therapydia Denver understand athletes, because we are athletes. We offer a wide range of sport-specific rehabilitation and performance programs to help athletes improve performance, recover from and prevent injury, regardless of their game, skill level or condition.

At Therapydia we believe that the best remedy to injury is prevention. On average the cost of an orthopedic surgery can cost about $25,000 to $30,000 including consultation fees. This is normally for patients who have to be hospitalized for 3 to 4 days. If surgery is performed under general or local anesthesia, there will be an additional cost of $4,000 to $6000. This doesn’t include trips to a primary care provider, diagnostic tests and most importantly time lost away from work. With our in depth evaluation skills and movement analysis we are able to determine specific movement impairments and prescribe proper interventions to return you to pain free function. In addition to performing pain free movement we also believe that a proper Therapydia program consists of a good action plan for all future functional mobility.

Identifying movement limitations or deficiencies before they become problematic can be vital in reducing risk of injury. This is not just limited to athletic performance but also an important element for work related activities and movements in everyday life. We posses a unique set of assessment tools, one of them being the Functional Movement Screen, or FMS. Designed by a physical therapist and an athletic trainer this tool allows us to understand more about the how’s and why’s related to your movement patterns. The information gathered from the screen then allows us to provide you with a detailed program that addresses areas of deficiency and limitation.
