Aims: The aim of this study was to investigate the prediction of injuries in Iranian soldiers with the Functional Movement Screening.

Methods: All the subjects were evaluated before the beginning of the trainings. The FMS tests including the deep squat, hurdle step, in-line lunge, shoulder mobility, straight leg raise, trunk stability push-up and rotary stability were used for the subjects’ evaluation. They were monitored for musculoskeletal injuries resulting through a 7-month basic combat training period.

Results: At least one musculoskeletal injury had been suffered by 42% of the cadets during the observation period. Logistic regression modeling indicated that the subjects who had a lower FMS score demonstrated higher injury risks (p=0.001). Also, considering the ROC curve and the Yourdon's index, the score of 14 was considered as a cut-off point. Therefore cadets whom FMS scores were lower than 14, were considered 5.6 time higher than the other soldiers exposed to lower extremities injury ROC curve with a cut-off point equal to 14 which shows sensitivity of 0.83 and a specificity of 0.93.

Conclusion: We can conclude from this study that functional movement screening can predict lower extremity injuries during medical in-processing.
