Comparing FMS and nordbord scores in professional football athletes with prior hamstring injuries

Author(s): Ats Özgur Ercan, Alptekin Hasan Kerem* and Burak Kunduracioglu

The primary purpose of our study is to evaluate, compare and contrast the results of the FMS (Functional Movement Screen) and Norbord (the tool to gauge the eccentric strength of hamstring muscle group) methods, commonly used for athlete assessments.

Within the scope of this study, 20 athletes between the ages 18-37, who had not experienced hamstring injuries during the previous six months and 20 athletes, who had experienced hamstring injuries in the previous six months were tested with FMS test battery and Norbord device. The study was carried out between November 2017 and April 2018.

Athletes were assigned a score within the range 1-3 in the FMS test, according to the quality of their movements during 7 different functional evaluation tests. Both limbs were assessed and the lower score is used at the final score. The athletes who scored a total of 14 points or fewer are considered to be within the ‘at risk’ group, while those, who scored 15 or above are considered ‘normal’.

An examination of the outcomes of the study reveals that the results, acquired from both methods, show parallelism with each other. Consequently, both methods can be used to detect prior injuries in hamstring muscle groups. However, further comprehensive studies, including an increase in the number of study participants, are essential to improve our understanding and knowledge.
