Background and Aim: The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of selected exercises course on the scores of the Functional Movement Screening (FMS) test among the special unit staff of the Isfahan police force.
Methods: The present study is quasi-experimental and prospective. The statistical sample of this research included 20 officers of the police special staff (NOPO) who were equally divided into two the experimental group (n=10) and the control group (n=10). Demographic characteristics of the special police force staff included mean age: 32.9
± 2.68 years old, height: 176.80 ± 5.44 cm, and weight: 78.40 ± 8.84 kg. First, the subjects 'functional screening test scores were recorded, then they exercised for 8 weeks (3 sessions per week), and each session was allocated to one hour of selected exercises. Later, the subjects' functional screening test scores were recorded again. Due to the non-normality of the data, a non-parametric Wilcoxon test was used and the data were analyzed by SPSS software.
Results: Eight weeks of selected exercises affected the FMS test score on four tests stepping over the obstacle (P=0.008), launch (P=0.009), stability push-ups (P=0.046), and rotational stability (P=0.015). However, it had no effect on four tests shoulder motion (P=1.000), deep squat (P=0.317), and active leg raising (P=0.83), and the significance level in the present study was 0.05.
Conclusion: The findings indicated that the selected exercises on the police department special staff are weak in shoulder and squat movement as well as in active leg elevation, but have a positive impact on the pattern of stepping over the obstacle, launch, stability push-up and rotational stability. Therefore, functional movement screening test, as a method of injury prevention, has been effective for the special staff of the police force.
