FAKTR stands for "Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation." It was developed to help speed recovery from chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes and has also been shown to work extremely well on acute musculoskeletal/fascial conditions.
Chronic pain results from dysfunction of the sensorimotor system, which is manifested in soft tissue and fascia. This new treatment approach to soft tissue dysfunction combines instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (SASTM) with proprioceptive techniques to reduce pain and return function.
In our clinical experience, combining manual treatment of soft tissue with proprioceptive exercises produces faster results than conventional treatment methods.
FAKTR-PM was developed by Tom Hyde DC, Greg Doerr DC, and Vince DeBono DC in 2002. For additional information go to the FAKTR website.
