Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
The SFMA movement analysis is a movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess seven fundamental movement patterns humans need for optimal, pain-free, movement. This functional movement assessment 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.
As a functional movement specialist, your chiropractor at Boulder Sports will use the SFMA, which 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 SFMA movement analysis 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 Selective Functional Movement Assessment 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 movement analysis in all new patient exams to more accurately diagnose your injury. We care about educating you in the process so that you are able to prevent additional injuries in the future. Our team likes to take a big picture approach to treatment and we treat beyond just the physical aspect with our chiropractic care. Dr. Alyx & Steve Brown look forward to helping you gain the control back in your life that you are wanting!
