What Happens During Functional Movement / SFMA?
Functional movement therapy always begins with a screening that evaluates your ability to complete certain basic, important, movements. Once your physiotherapist identifies areas of weakness and dysfunction, they will develop and implement a treatment plan. This treatment plan will focus on approaches that strengthen the muscles involved in the affected movements and in teaching your body how to successfully navigate in a way that does not cause pain or stress.
What Conditions Does Functional Movement / SFMA Treat?
Functional movement therapy is ideal for correcting problems affecting the musculoskeletal system. From back pain to herniated discs, these mostly spinal-based conditions typically respond well to corrections in a patient’s patterns of movement.
