Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR)
The online FAKTR video course features a review of the literature in an attempt to describe how manual, instrument assisted treatment and FAKTR protocols affect a variety of soft tissue and fascial conditions. This includes demonstrations of hand holds for instruments, a variety of treatment strokes and manual methods of treating soft tissue injuries. You will learn how to perform nerve flossing of the upper extremities at the most common sites of entrapment. A brief description of kinesiology taping and treatment of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is also presented.
FAKTR (pronounced FACTOR) is actually a concept, not a technique. The acronym stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab. A few years ago, Greg Doerr, DC and Tom Hyde, DC began to experiment with treating soft tissue/fascial disorders through the use of instruments.
