Selective Functional Movement Assessment
Identifying Faulty Movement Patterns Causing Pain
The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) targets the underlying dysfunctional movement patterns that trigger pain. By performing specific movements, symptoms are displayed, which brings to light any limitations and dysfunctions. By detecting dysfunctions in movement patterns, this enables the development of a treatment plan aimed at restoring pain-free movement and function.
Discover Your Dysfunctions & Regain Mobility
The SFMA incorporates various movement patterns, including bending, twisting, and reaching, to assess a patient’s musculoskeletal issues comprehensively. An observational gait analysis is often included to evaluate the patient’s walking or running pattern, detect any abnormalities, and identify imbalances that could contribute to their condition. This analysis examines the biomechanics of human movement, analyzing step length, foot strike, stride duration, and joint angles, among other factors. By examining these different movement patterns, the SFMA can provide a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s overall movement quality and identify areas of weakness or dysfunction that need to be addressed to restore pain-free movement and function.
