Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR) is not a treatment per se, but the use of several techniques and modalities combined with movement to restore function and reduce pain. That is, the practitioner will use different techniques depending on the movement or posture that’s painful. Whether it’s while stretching, in contraction, while balancing or in movement, they’ll determine the best form of treatment and rehabilitation. The goal of FAKTR is to reduce myofascial adhesions and restore pain-free movement. To do this, the practitioner will use several instruments and techniques:

  • Suction cups
  • Graston Instruments or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
  • Elastic bands
  • Swiss ball
  • Various taping techniques
  • BOSU ball, balance cushions
  • Step
  • Weights and dumbbells
  • Proprioception tools
