The list of conditions treated with FAKTR are too numerous to list.

What does a FAKTR treatment consist of?

FAKTR treatment is unique as in we treat the patient in the position of provocation. The goal is to get the patient moving and functioning better. With the soft tissue therapies the muscle, facia, and soft connective tissue is able to glide and move better leading to improved movement and function. With the FAKTR protocols there are 5 phases of treatment. Static, motion, resistance, function, and proprioception. As a patient progresses we can step up a level of treatment to get sustained improvement and progress.

FAKTR treatment can consist of a therapy known as Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation.. It may also include cupping, dynamic taping, proprioceptive exercise and rehab.
