Selective Functional  Movement Assessment Certified

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.
