In addition to medical history and a neurological exam, we integrate the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) for all patients. The SFMA is a diagnostic tool that measures fundamental patterns of movement, such as squatting, bending, and overhead positions, in those with musculoskeletal pain. The screening identifies the places where you are not moving well and directs appropriate treatment towards that region.
Getting an accurate diagnosis is 90% of the treatment plan. SFMA is highly effective because it addresses the root of the problem: lack of mobility and/or dysfunctional motor patterns. By conducting a movement assessment using SFMA, Dr. Fidler can craft the best personal treatment plan based on individual patient needs. He will look at your life holistically: where and how you work, your at-rest posture, your exercise routines, and everything in between
