Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation (FAKTR) at SHC
The Spine & Health Center of New Jersey is proud to offer Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation (FAKTR).
FAKTR (pronounced FACTOR) stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab. It incorporates the latest research and evidence based soft-tissue techniques into a comprehensive protocol to treat common disorders of the musculoskeletal system and complicated injuries quickly and easily with impressive results.
FAKTR can be used to treat a wide variety of muscle-skeletal conditions including tendinopathy, sprain, strains, entrapment syndromes, fascial restrictions such as plantar fasciitis, ITB syndrome, myofascial pain syndromes, adhesive capsulitis, and post-surgical recovery. The list of conditions treated with FAKTR are too numerous to list.
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.
