The Selective Functional Movement Assessment

Jenn Hartmann

The Selective Functional Movement Assessment is a clinical assessment of overall movement capability.  The assessment works by systematically categorizing the body into its individual, observable joint motions.  The SFMA separately tests both the stability and the mobility of each single, isolated joint.  A qualified, certified clinician utilizes this test to gain both an insight into total movement efficiency as well as the specific causes for any movement related pain or dysfunction.
