“Selective Functional Movement Assessment is a series of 7 full-body movement tests designed to assess fundamental patterns of movement such as bending and squatting in those with known musculoskeletal pain. When the clinical assessment is initiated from the perspective of the movement pattern, the clinician has the opportunity to identify meaningful impairments that may be seemingly unrelated to the main musculoskeletal complaint, but contribute to the associated disability.” – www.functionalmovement.com

In other words, we can find and treat the true source that is causing the main complaint of pain, which can sometimes be an area of the body that is away from the area of pain. For example, the SFMA could indicate a stiff ankle from chronic ankle sprains, which could be contributing to alignment issues and your back pain!
