Assessment of movement quality often termed ‘movement screening’, is widely used in a variety of sports. Numerous arguments to support such activity exists; however, the evidence base is often limited and contradictory. The purpose of this webinar is to explore the scientific evidence surrounding movement quality and its relationship to injury risk and physical performance. Emphasis will be placed on the logistics of using the various movement screening protocols outlined in current research.

Learning Outcomes of the Webinar:

  • Explain why, in theory, movement quality can reasonably be expected to have an association with injury and performance
  • Identify the movement screens that appear within the literature
  • Explain why it is a step too far to say that movement screening can ‘predict’ injury
  • Identify other merits, out with injury prediction, of such assessments
  • State some of the logistical considerations relevant to carrying out movement assessment with athletes
