SFMA stands for Selective Functional Movement Assessment and is a diagnostic screening tool used by the rehabilitation professional in order to determine the cause of pain and discomfort and then design a individualized but formulaic treatment plan. SFMA is great tool that we are providing to the Fox Chapel and greater Pittsburgh area.
Patients in the Fox Chapel and greater Pittsburgh area may be put through the first tier of the SFMA during their initial visit and examination. The information gained from this screen is used to determine weaknesses in the patient’s functional abilities and from that information design a treatment approach to improve those deficits. The SFMA first tier screen is then used periodically to reassess patients and allow them to see just how much they have improved. The SFMA can be used for a wide array of different injuries and dysfunctions and is a vital part of rehabbing patients so that they can get back to doing the things that they love.
