Concepts of Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab Using Manual and Soft Tissue Treatment and Assessment (FAKTR)

 Tools

Tools will be provided for use during the seminar. Please note that if you already have a set of tools please feel free to bring them with you.

Tools are available to purchase, if you would like them for the seminar please note that pre-ordering would be required. You can also order on the day of the seminar. Please visit https://faktr-store.com/products/aecc-course-gift-card for a special course price.

 

FAKTR 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 expenditures of time and resources. The FAKTR System utilizes multiple soft tissue mobilization techniques, including our foundation of IASTM (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization) with functional rehabilitation to improve range-of-motion, strength, edema and healing through treatment in positions of provocation and motion as opposed 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 instruments and with very simplistic rehab equipment such as physioballs, stability pads latex bands and loops, etc.

 

We will present a treatment developed using peer-reviewed research and evidence from a wide variety of resources. The hands-on 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. We want the clinician to know when to treat with FAKTR and when treatment is inappropriate with our Concepts. Those attending will hone their manual and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) skills. If you do not know how to utilize either manual or IASTM, you will be shown various hand strokes, hand holds as well as different forms of manual treatment. You will learn both indications for treatment as well as contraindications. In addition to the above information, those attending will also learn how to incorporate a wide variety of rehabilitative exercises during treatment. We cover TMJ, spine, upper extremities (shoulder to fingers), lower extremities (hip to toes), buttocks, SI Joints, abdomen, core stabilizers and more.

The class is hands-on in nature, providing anopportunity for all delegates to demonstrate on their classmates and vice versa.

Participant Assessment Methods:

Analyze – Participants will work through various scenarios involving patient presentations of a variety conditions during the hands-on portion of the class. Through palpation, basic range-of-motion testing and functional movement assessments, participants will practice assessments indicating use of the FAKTR concept.

Apply – After assessing the scenario “condition” they are attempting to demonstrate on their hands-on partner, the participants will apply the FAKTR protocol using all 5 concepts in order—demonstrating treatment from a static position, position of provocation, incorporating movement and applicable functional rehabilitation exercises to produce a desired outcome. There will be open discussion amongst participants and the instructor in the best ways to bring about a desired outcome. The instructor will introduce and demonstrate first and then allow participants to demonstrate on each other. During participant demonstration, the instructor will go throughout the classroom and provide one-on-one guidance and answers to questions, tips on appropriate technique and application, etc.

Learning Outcomes include:
At the conclusion of the program, participants will be able to:


1. Assess and recognize the indications and contraindications for utilizing the FAKTR protocol to treat a
variety of conditions and patient presentations from head-to-toe
2. Understand and apply the appropriate IASTM treatment strokes based upon patient presentation
and phase of healing.
3. Implement the FAKTR system incorporating IASTM and other manual soft tissue treatments to treat
various musculoskeletal conditions
4. Recognize the significance of the literature presented in regards to its application to the various
phases of healing in an attempt to accelerate its natural history.
5. Understand the proper use of biomechanical tape and apply as appropriate for improved patient
outcomes.
6. Utilize appropriate exercise protocols with soft tissue techniques to improve patient outcomes
7. Utilize functional movement assessment as an indication for the application of
appropriate rehabilitative techniques
8. Apply the FAKTR System to develop and effectively progress patients through a comprehensive
care plan.
