Abstract or Summary
  • Athletic activities have always carried an inherent risk for injuries, and basketball is no exception. Basketball is the second most popular team sport in the United States in which 984,777 high school boys and girls participated during the 2010-2011 season. Athletic trainers and strength and conditioning staff are pressured to keep these athletes healthy and playing in games. Injury prevention strategies can reduce the amount of injuries accumulated during a basketball season. One possible injury prevention tool is Gray Cook’s Functional Movement Screen (FMS). The FMS is a seven test screen which portrays a brief overview of an athlete’s fundamental movement patterns (the quality of an athlete’s movements). Poor movement patterns and asymmetries have been associated with injuries. Scholarly research is investigated to identify if the FMS could identify injury susceptible players in the sport of basketball. The literature reviewed reveals mixed results. Some studies identify a possible connection between low FMS scores and injury susceptibility while other literature displays the FMS’s inability to predict injury potential. Other research suggests that the FMS may lack the ability to identify injury susceptibility in athletes who have had a previous injury. Overall, the research is too inconclusive to suggest that the FMS should be used as a pre-participation screening tool for the sport of basketball.
