Functional Soft Tissue, Featuring FAKTR is a 14.5 hour hands on seminar including an introduction to Movement Assessment for the evaluation and treatment of soft tissue dysfunction, the use of FAKTR Concepts, and Rehabilitation for soft tissue remodeling.
Functional Movement evaluation will be introduced to assist in determining areas of injury and dysfunction and help isolate areas along the kinetic chain that may be dysfunctional but not pain provoking for faster and more lasting outcomes. These evaluation procedures can also be used for functional assessments for progress evaluation documentation.
Soft tissue dysfunction will be treated head to toe using FAKTR Concepts with specific attention to ligament, tendon, myofascial, post-surgical care in both the acute and chronic phases. You will learn to use the 3 applications of FAKTR 1. Neurologic 2. Pro-inflammatory structural changes 3. Anti-inflammatory; with the 5 FAKTR Concepts 1. Positions of provocation 2. Motion 3. Resistance (under load) 4. Functional Positions and activities 5. Adding proprioception. FAKTR concepts will be used with both instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) as well as by manual methods.
Finally, we will demonstrate rehabilitation exercises for each body part for remodeling and stabilization of soft tissue with specific attention to use of theraband low tech rehab for kinetic chain and postural dysfunction using Janda Concepts, TRX suspension trainers, and much more. There will be 4+ exercises demonstrated for each soft tissue section that will enhance and create longer lasting benefits to your FAKTR soft tissue treatments!
