Today I got to do on-ice testing of the athletes and movement screens. It’s great to see the FMS and SFMA are used in the NHL to monitor athletic movement quality.
After 2 days of training camp most of the players are starting to feel fatigued and the common tightness in the front of their hip. I was fortunate enough to help many of the players and the below pictured goaltender.
This goalie did his mobility work, instantly reported decreased symptoms in his hips, and then set the record for the day on both posterior medial and posterior lateral portions of the y-balance test.
Goalies do goalie things!
