Functional Movement Assessment

East Toronto, Danforth, Riverdale

Both Dr. Peter Tzakas and Carmen Wan have completed certification in the Selective Functional Movement Assessment.

The SFMA is a structured, repeatable movement based diagnostic system that health care professionals use with patients experiencing pain.

It is based on assessing 7 fundamental movement patterns and integrates a concept known as Regional Interdependance - how seemingly unrelated problems are actually driving the dysfunction and causing pain.

By understanding which patterns to assess further the clinician develops a roadmap to your rehab, identifying mobility versus motor control dysfunctions. This allows us to create a more efficient treatment plan.
