FAKTR - Rehab System - Boca Raton, FL

Event date: 3/16/2019 8:30 AM - 3/17/2019 12:30 PM Export event

With FAKTR, we apply the latest research on the study of soft tissue manipulation, especially in relation to human performance and well-being. Many clinicians often seek non-invasive treatment options for athletes and active individuals that achieve rapid, positive results with minimal expenditure of time and resources. The FAKTR System utilizes multiple soft tissue mobilization techniques paired with dynamic exercise in provocative positions. This is meant to improve range-of-motion and strength, while stimulating healing. This is in stark contrast to the traditional “static soft-tissue treatment” model. Sports practitioners in particular are often performing treatments in locker rooms, on side-lines or in non-clinical settings without the ability to use expensive equipment or therapeutic modalities. The FAKTR rehabilitation system can be applied with or without soft tissue instruments and with a range of rehab equipment and technology such as physioballs, stability pads latex bands and loops, extracorporeal shockwave therapy, etc. 

The didactic portion of the class begins with an update of the latest evidence, followed by demonstrations of how to treat the majority of the body using the 5 Concepts of FAKTR. Those attending will receive extensive instruction in manual and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) skills. Clinicians that don’t currently utilize either manual or IASTM will be shown various IASTM strokes, as well as different forms of manual treatment. Participants will learn indications and contraindications for treatment. Most importantly, attendees will also learn how to incorporate a wide variety of rehabilitative exercises during treatment. Areas of treatment include the spine, upper extremities (shoulder to fingers), lower extremities (hip to toes), buttocks, SI Joints, abdomen, diaphragm and more. Since this class is mostly hands-on in nature, it will provide ample opportunity for all attendees to demonstrate techniques and exercises on each other.
