FAKTR utilizes the most up-to-date research available regarding the application of manual therapies and exercise to improve patient/client outcomes. Given the recent climate about the opioid epidemic and surgery, clinicians are seeking non-invasive treatment options for athletes and active individuals that achieve rapid, positive results with minimal expenditure of resources and time. The FAKTR System utilizes multiple soft tissue mobilization techniques paired with therapeutic exercise in painful or dysfunctional movements. 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, lasers, 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 pre and post-treatment assessment. After assessing, they will receive hands-on training utilizing instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), myofascial decompression with cupping, compression floss bands and hands-on techniques. Most importantly, attendees will also learn how to incorporate a wide variety of relevant, rehabilitative exercises for each area of treatment. Instruction will include the spine, upper extremities (shoulder to fingers), lower extremities (hip to toes), buttocks, SI Joints, abdomen, diaphragm and more. Lastly, students will be taught biomechanical, elastic taping techniques for prophylactic purposes, as well as support of treatments provided. 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.

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 and demonstrate the proper use of biomechanical tape as indicated by patient
6. Utilize appropriate exercise protocols with and without soft tissue techniques to improve patient outcomes.
7. Utilize orthopedic, neurologic and 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.
