Selective Functional Movement Assessment

Selective Functional Movement Assessment

Selective Functional Movement Assessment is a series of tests designed to assess patterns of movement related to musculoskeletal pain. SFMA identifies significant impairments attributed to Regional Interdependence. RI centers around the relationship between discomfort in remote locations and a patient’s primary complaint.

About SFMA

SFMA examines a patient’s posturing, muscle performance, motor control and balance reaction through a series of movement patters. This helps our clinicians know exactly where to target subsequent treatments to increase the likelihood of an optimal outcome. Selective Functional Movement Assessment  aims to integrate the concepts of muscle balance. This can provide feedback related to the effectiveness of the prescribed exercise program.

Austin Preferred’s integrative approach seeks to treat the cause of our patients’ ailments, rather than simply relieving pain. SFMA is a critical component to this approach and allows our providers to better understand the relationship between impairments in different body segments and the cumulative effects they may have.
