The SFMA is geared towards patients with musculoskeletal pain. It is based on 7 fundamental movement patterns. By breaking down dysfunctional patterns, it becomes a systematic tool that allows the therapist to find the cause of your symptoms.
(SMFA) is a diagnostic system designed to assess the quality of seven cardinal movement patterns that are central to everyday human functioning. Moving the head, reaching, bending forward, bending backwards, twisting, stepping, and squatting are activities that people perform on a daily basis. If the quality of any of these motions is compromised over time, inflammation, pain, and soft tissue damage can result.
The SFMA™ is a scientifically validated tool that will enable us to identify the underlying cause of these faulty movement patterns and assist them to create a corrective treatment plan. The assessment will identify imbalances, left/right asymmetries, as well as dysfunctions in stability and motor control–all of which could be the cause of current or future problems.
