Improve your movement patterns, decrease pain and get back to doing what you want to do!
- Does pain or limitation stop you from getting down onto the floor or being able to kick the footy with the grand-kids (or just keep up with the fast little ones?!)
- Is pain or a niggling problem affecting your enjoyment of your golf, tennis, netball, football or squash game or morning walk?
- Have you had a previous injury, such as a knee ligament injury or operation, and don't want to injure yourself again (previous injury is the biggest predictor of future injury, if movement patterns stay the same).
- Do you sit for long periods and experience neck, shoulder or back pain?
Lisa utilises the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) to accurately assess for underlying movement pattern dysfunctions, which ultimately lead to injury and symptoms, including pain. By undertaking a complete assessment that looks at where your pain is stemming from, not where you are necessarily feeling the pain, it helps to take a whole body approach to improving the way you move, and feel. And, who doesn't want to move better so that you can do all the things in life you want to do?!!
So, What Is SFMA Exactly?
The SFMA is the movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess 7 fundamental movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain. The assessment provides an efficient method to systematically find the cause of symptoms, not just the source. It is a highly specialised assessment for measuring your functionality and movement, and the detailed process allows clinicians to clearly match their intervention to the main problem of the patient.
If you have a stubborn injury that won’t go away and have tried conventional therapies, then it may be that something is being overlooked in the grand picture. Potentially, the true cause of the problem may be being missed. This is exactly where the SFMA excels. After completion of an assessment, your exercise physiologist will be in a position to accurately identify mobility and/or dysfunctional movement patterns. Only once these issues are resolved can your body effectively recover.
