FAKTR –  Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab, Provocation, and Motion


FAKTR incorporates the latest evidence=-based soft tissue techniques into a specific protocol to treat musculoskeletal disorders and complicated injuries quickly and easily. The co-developers utilized their training in a variety of soft tissue techniques including instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) to develop a concept that included function and treatment of the kinetic chain while utilizing various forms of rehabilitation at the same time.


The treatment uses a hand-held instrument to enable our doctors to detect and treat scar tissue and fascial restrictions afflicting soft tissue. Treatment includes the introduction of micro-trauma to the affected area to break down scar tissue and adhesions and to trigger a local inflammatory response which, in turn, initiates the reabsorption of scar tissue facilitating the healing process. Patients will ultimately experience enhanced ranges of motion and increased flexibility.

Trauma or malfunction of fascia can create an environment of poor cellular efficiency, necrosis, disease, pain and dysfunction throughout the body, profoundly influencing cellular health and the immune system. FAKTR reduces treatment time, fosters rehabilitation and recovery, obviates the need for anti-inflammatory medications, resolves chronic conditions previously thought to be permanent and enables patients’ reengagement in daily activities.
The instrument itself is specially designed to fit the contours of the body, aiding in diagnosis and effectively treating pain and its causes. Conditions most commonly treated with FAKTR include sprain/strains, nerve entrapments, myofascial trigger points, over-use syndromes, scar tissue adhesions and tendonopathies.
