What is SFMA Level 1?
The SFMA fills our clinical need to assess for stability and/or motor control dysfunctions as well as mobility dysfunctions.
The SFMA is our clinical assessment for those who experience pain. It is a movement based diagnostic system which systematically finds the cause of pain - not just the source - by logically breaking down dysfunctional movement patterns in a structured, repeatable assessment.
Look at it this way. When you head to the hospital for shooting arm pain, the immediate course of action is to check your heart, not your arm. The symptoms down your arm are just a result of a problem elsewhere in the body. Similarly, the SFMA focuses on underlying dysfunctional movement to find the cause of pain, not just the source. This concept is better known as regional interdependence - how seemingly unrelated problems are actually driving the dysfunction.
What makes SFMA unique? We are the first organized system that takes into account altered motor control – the inability to coordinate proper movements. This system allows us to identify the correct problems - mobility versus motor control – to best equip clinicians for a successful outcome.
There are many great mobility treatment systems, but in the SFMA, we introduce you to our methodology on reprogramming motor control. We use the neurodevelopmental perspective – the way we learn to move as infants – to create a system to reteach our brains how to communicate with our bodies.
When you leave this course, you will be armed with a repeatable diagnostic system to apply the manual techniques already in your toolbox, as well as now add a motor control component tool. The primary focus of Level 1 is to empower participants to not only gain experience with the assessment, but also to develop confidence to successfully integrate the system into their clinical practice.
What is SFMA Level 2?
The SFMA Level 2 provides a systematic approach to efficiently treating movement dysfunction.
The Level 2 Course emphasizes our 3 R's approach - Reset, Reinforce, and Reloading - to restore proper movement. With your SFMA findings, you can prioritize where to start your treatment plan and what the intervention is. There are many great mobility techniques available -in SFMA Level 2 we discuss Reset options, but the primary focus to our course is Reinforcement and Reloading.
Infants develop movement in patterns, not individual muscles. They learn to control movements before they progress to a more challenging posture. Using the neurodevelopmental perspective – how we learned to move as infants – we have developed a model to guide motor control programming to mimic what we learned in our early years.
When you leave this course, you will be equipped with a motor control reprogramming tool to immediately integrate into your clinical practice.
