Functional Soft Tissue. The FAKTR Concept

Dr Gregory H. Doerr, DC, CCSP, SFMA, ART, FMT, CSTI, CKTP

Introduction of IASTM theory and application for common MSK disorders.  The physiology, neurology, and anatomy of soft tissue injuries and how IASTM affects them are discussed.  The concepts of using motion, resistance, functional positions in the application of IASTM are introduced.  Applications of pro-inflammatory, neurologic resets, and anti-inflammatory using IASTM are presented as well as which soft tissue injuries these applications should be applied to.

Finally video examples of the application of IASTM are presented to further the comprehension of IASTM in soft tissue injuries.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

Review the anatomy, physiology, neurology of soft tissue injuries and the how IASTM affects them.

Demonstration and application of THE FAKTR CONCEPT in the treatment of ligament, tendon, myofascial, post-surgical, and traumatic injuries in the acute or chronic stages.

Apply soft tissue procedures for the purpose of neuroloigical resetting of tissue, pro-inflammatory treatments, and anti-inflammatory treatment

Present hands on examples of IASTM for the different applications using video examples.
