Fabiola is an Advanced Applied Functional Trained Physical Therapist through the Grey Institue and an avid follower of the Grey Cook FSM method
Applied Functional Science (AFS)
It is a distinctive and integrated approach to evaluation, rehabilitation, training, and conditioning that enhances neuro-muscular-skeletal comfort and performance for people of all ages and conditions. AFS trained therapists are able to find the biomechanical faults and compensations to focus on root causes instead of merely the symptoms. Leveraging the proven and trusted principles of the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences, AFS uses natural three-dimensional movement strategies to subconsciously normalize biomechanical chain reaction efficiency and effectiveness. AFS produces accelerated results that are measurable and sustainable. We’ve all heard every action leads to a reaction, that is especially true in the human body. One faulty part leads to many faulty parts and then possibly pain, degeneration, injury, or non-healing. An AFS trained physical therapist has the unique training to find that faulty part, evaluate how it has affected the rest of your body, and the unique ability to fix it correctly.
What is the difference?
Traditional medicine treats the part and Functional Medicine (AFS) treats the person. For example, when treating a painful knee:
- Focus: What part of the knee is damaged or weak.
- Analysis: the knee and its parts only.
- Treatment: improve or strengthen that part of the knee.
- Focus: what caused the knee to weaken or degenerate.
- Analysis: you and the way you move and how it affects your knee, from the foot all the way to the head.
- Treatment: correct the problem that caused the knee issue as opposed to simply treating the symptoms.
Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
It is a tool used to identify asymmetries which result in functional movement deficiencies. The FMS aims to identify imbalances in mobility and stability during seven fundamental movement patterns.
