FAKTR is Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab.
FAKTR (pronounced “factor”) is a revolutionary way to treat soft tissue problems. It is effective for many conditions, ranging from headaches, back pain, shoulder problems, pain in the elbows, feet…just about any body part. Injuries can be caused by over use, falls, auto accidents, sports injuries, work related injuries and can have bothered you for a long time, or be a new condition. Most of these problems can be resolved within a few treatments.
Dr. Goodman is a FAKTR provider and will do a complete examination and history of your complaint before determining if this is the best treatment for your condition. You might be treated by Dr. G with instruments or possibly, just her hands. A treatment can take anywhere from a few minutes to up to half an hour, depending on your condition.
It is common for our doctors to combine the use of TRX straps, weight bearing and movement with our instrument assisted Manual Therapy during your treatment (as pictured here).
FAKTR, in many cases, can usually provide positive results much more quickly than other forms of treatment.
FAKTR is not effective on all conditions and is not appropriate for all patients. There are both indications and contraindications for the use of FAKTR.
