There are 21 total possible points, if the score is 14 or less you may be more likely to incur an injury during your fitness or activity program.

Based on your results, you will be given a personalized corrective exercise program to improve your movement skill and ability. Improving on fundamental movement patterns will strengthen your foundation of movement competency and efficiency, allowing you train more effectively, play more vigorously and prevent injury.
