SFMA: Selective Functional Movement Assessment

A persistent education course that is intended for healthcare professionals that consistently treat their patients for musculoskeletal conditions throughout their life.

An organized, stable movement based diagnosis used for patients encountering pain.

SFMA is a differential diagnosis that identifies mobility versus motor control dysfunctions which allows them to create a more effective treatment plan to reach a successful outcome.

Developed around 7 fundamental movement patterns and combines a concept known as regional interdependence which discovers how unrelated problems are causing the function and triggering pain.

SFMA provides a more systematic approach to reteach the brain beneficial movements and locate the cause of pain, not just the source.  

SFMA knows entirely where to target the treatments and is a structured, repeatable assessment.

The overall goal of SFM is to recognize specific movement limitations that deliver pain.

CBP:  Chiropractic Biophysics

A technique initially named by Dr. Donald Harrison, Deanne Harrison, and Daniel Murphy for “physics applied to biology in chiropractic.”

CBP is a variation of straight chiropractic to completely correct one’s posture

EMS is used to treat pain releif, reduce inflammation, avoid muscle atrophy, and lessen muscle spasm.
