What is selective functional movement assessments?
Selective functional movement assessments (SFMA) is a systematic and thorough evaluation process that examines functional movement patterns. It identifies dysfunctions, imbalances, and compensations in the body, with the goal of uncovering the root causes of pain and movement restrictions. By pinpointing specific issues, therapists can created targeted treatment plans that address not only symptoms but also the underlying problems. This approach promotes efficient recovery, reduces the risk of recurring injuries, and enhances overall athletic performance.
At the Sport Medicine Clinic, we incorporate SFMA into treatment plans because it offers a systematic and data-driven method to accelerate recovery, reduce discomfort, and promote optimal healing for our patients.
