Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)

Benefits Of Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA):

  • Diagnoses dysfunctional movement to identify why you’re in pain
  • Determines whether the pain is a mobility or stability issue
  • Sets a baseline for essential human movement patterns

Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) Is Good For Anyone:

  • With tight or sore muscles, despite stretching
  • In chronic or acute pain
  • Striving toward their highest training potential

Our Approach To Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)

SFMA evaluates seven fundamental movement patterns that are crucial to moving pain-free. The assessment provides a clear, systematic picture of what’s going on in your body, so we trace your pain’s root cause—and determine if it’s a mobility, stability, or motor control issue. Along with our expert eye for compensation patterns, SFMA enables us to prescribe the right mix of treatments—like Active Release Technique and other strength exercises—to get you back to doing what you love.

Your Visit

Any good assessment starts with your health history and a thorough review of how you move. What sets UWC apart is our ability to differentiate between mobility and stability problems; each requires a unique set of fixes. During treatment, we test your range of movement and any weak spots, noting your kinetic patterns. We fire up your muscle memory and correct improper form with a powerful combination of ART, NKT, and other strength exercises. Our goal is to empower you to perform at your happiest, most optimal level.
