Assessing Movement - Stuart McGill/Gray Cook/Craig Leibenson

This live-event video took place in early 2014 at Stanford University, where Craig Liebenson moderated a day-long conversation between Gray Cook, the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) creator, and Stuart McGill, a back pain expert and researcher who has reviewed the current science covering the FMS and related movement screen research.  

The resulting DVD set is 6 discs covering 5 hours and 40 minutes, as follows.

Disc 1, 60 minutes
The day begins with a 60-minute overview by Gray Cook, who outlines his thinking behind movement screening, the intent of the FMS, and the incorrect assumptions people make about it. He touches on how he uses the FMS, what he expects to learn from a screen, and what he doesn't expect it to do. 
~ The FMS Why Statement ~ It's a Weak Link Strategy ~ Total Score Confusion ~ Injury Risk Prediction ~ Is It a Simplistic Assessment? ~ Program Constriction

Disc 2, 50 minutes
In the second session, Stuart McGill begins by describing and dissecting some of the research involving the FMS. He develops some of the areas of agreement and disagreement between his research review and the popular opinions about the FMS.  
~ Contrasting Approaches ~ Can a Movement Screen Predict How a Person Will Move? ~ Can Faulty Movement Be Changed? ~ Movement Quality and Injury Prediction ~ Odds Ratio in Scientific Studies ~ Reviewing the Science

Disc 3, 60 minutes
Disc 3 begins with Gray's response to Stuart's first lecture, and includes his hopes of what the attendees might get from the day. Stuart then takes over to describe how his assessments might progress, what he's seen in his research, and how he might use the results of his assessments to design an athlete's program. 
~ Gray Cook's Response ~ Developing the Ideal Screen or Assessment ~ Injuries in the Lab ~ Contrasts and Common Ground ~ The McGill Approach ~ Designing a Program 

Disc 4, 52 minutes
The afternoon begins with a brief demonstration of the FMS done by Kyle Kiesel while Gray adds commentary to explain what the viewers are watching. He then spends 10 minutes reviewing the resulting scores and describing what the scores tell him. Stuart takes over for the rest of the session to show a few of the assessments he uses for athletes, clients and patients.  
~ The FMS Demonstration ~ Reviewing the FMS Scores ~ McGill Context Assessments ~ Hip Anatomy Demonstration ~ Pulling Demonstration ~ Jumping Demonstration ~ Hip External Rotation

Disc 5, 39 minutes
Here Craig Liebenson discusses some of this history of human movement in medicine and patient care. He begins with an overview of how medicine has progressed over the recent years, and his hopes for the future as more and more clinicians understand the brain's role in both movement and in pain.  
~ Screens to Counter Measures ~ Functional Goals ~ Enhancing Durability ~ Assess, Correct & Re-Assess ~ Follow an Audit Process ~ Guarding after Injury

Disc 6, 1 hour & 21 minutes
There were multiple Q&A sessions throughout the day. Those audience-directed segments were collected into a single disc, Disc 6, which opens with a recap of the day as presented by Craig Liebenson and wraps up with closing remarks from Stuart McGill and Gray Cook.
~ Craig Liebenson Recap ~ Exposure & Workload ~ The Magnificent 7 ~ Self-Regulate vs Adaptation ~ Unilateral Exercises ~ Screening the Breath ~ Lumbar Antalgia ~ State of Readiness ~ Managing the FMS in Groups ~ Which Athletes Need the Deep Squat Exercise? ~ Demonstrating Motor Control Improvement ~ Natural vs Corrected Patterns ~ Ankle Dorsiflexion ~ Assess, Correct, Re-Assess ~ How to Address Patient Care ~ Improvements to the FMS ~ Screening Gait ~ Pain as an Indicator ~ Can You Alter Sleep Patterns? ~ Pelvis & Shoulder Disassociation ~ Can the FMS & McGill Assessments Co-Exist? ~ Stuart McGill Closing Remarks ~ Gray Cook Closing Remarks
