Selective Functional Movement Assessment

 

 

sfma

 

 

SFMA is the movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess 7 fundamental movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain. The assessment provides an efficient method to systematically find the cause of symptoms, not just the source, by logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root cause as either a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem.

This systematic process allows clinicians to clearly match their intervention to the main problem of the patient. This model efficiently integrates the concepts of altered motor control, the neurodevelopmental perspective, and regional interdependence into musculoskeletal practice

 

 

Foam Rolling 

roll

 

 

Foam rollers offer many of the same benefits as a sports massage The foam roller not only stretches muscles and tendons but it also breaks down soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue. By using your own body weight and a cylindrical foam roller you can perform a self-massage or myofascial release, break up trigger points, and soothe tight fascia while increasing blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues.

 

Therapeutic & Sports Taping

 

tape

 

Therapeutic and sports taping "may be of some assistance to clinicians in improving pain-free active range of movement immediately after tape application for patients with shoulder pain" per the findings in the 2008 Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physiotherapy 38:7, 389-395. 

Dr. Kase Kenso lists the following as the four major functions of Kinesio Taping. These functions drive the technology behind the tape:

  • Supporting the muscle
  • Removing congestion to the flow of body fluids 
  • Activating the endogenous analgesic system
  • Correcting joint problems
