SFMA at SHC
The Spine & Health Center of New Jersey is proud to offer FMS & (SFMA).
The SFMA is a 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.
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? It is 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. SFMA uses neurodevelopmental perspective - the way we learn to move as infants - to create a system to reteach our brains how to communicate with our bodies.
