Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
The SFMA is a movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess seven fundamental movement patterns humans need for optimal, pain-free, movement. The SFMA is a great tool to accurately diagnose the ROOT cause of the problem. We know you have shoulder pain when you swim, the SFMA helps us pinpoint WHY you have the pain.
The SFMA is a whole body movement analysis that starts at the neck and moves all the way down to the toes. It not only helps identify sources of pain, it also allows us to find the sources of weakness. The movement screen is a powerful tool to find limiting factors in athletes allowing us to help improve your performance!
The movement screen is a great place to start for adults looking to get back into working out without risking injury or to make sure your young athlete is not developing bad habits for their sport. The SFMA can be a great tool for athletes to use at the start of the off season – helping to identify weakness that should be addressed before the start of the next season.
At Boulder Sports Chiropractic, we use the SFMA in all new patient exams to more accurately diagnose your injury.
