Our clinic utilises the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) to accurately assess for underlying movement pattern dysfunctions, which ultimately lead to injury and symptoms.

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, by logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root cause as either a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem.

This systematic process allows clinicians to clearly match their intervention to the main problem of the patient. This model efficiently integrates the concepts of altered motor control, the neurodevelopmental perspective, and regional interdependence into musculoskeletal practice.

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, the physiotherapist will be in a position to accurately identify your dysfunctional movement pattern and conclude whether you in fact have a movement problem or a motor control/stability problem. Only once these isssues are resolved can your body effectively recover.
