Benefits of Regular Screening Mammograms

  • Regular screening mammograms can find breast cancer early, usually before it has spread.
  • Being an aging woman is the strongest risk factor for breast cancer.
  • About one in nine women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. One in 28 women is expected to die from the disease.
  • A visit takes about 15 minutes and you do not need a doctor’s referral.

Functional Movement Screen

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a tool used by physicians, physiotherapists, personal trainers and other health care professionals to analyze fundamental movement patterns.

The screen tests 7 movement patterns that will measure the performance of basic loco motor, manipulative and stabilizing movements. By placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances are more noticeable, health professionals can distinguish what treatment is most appropriate.

At the end of the FMS you will:

  • be educated on the results of the screen
  • Prescribed basic exercise techniques
  • Be given and area to focus improving

The FMS is a tool that has been used on everyone from the working class to high performance athletes. This tool can be used in injury prevention, rehabilitation and strength environments.

FMS are booked by appointment only. To learn more about the screen please visit
