Register for SFMA Level 1

Sep 23-24, 2023, Newberg, OR

This SFMA Level 1 seminar includes both the 7 hour online course, as well as a 2-day live event, where the background, philosophy, evidence, and logic of the model will be covered.

The SFMA provides an efficient method for systematically determining the cause of the patient’s pain, not just the source. The SFMA is a repeatable diagnostic metric which begins with 7 full-body movements, known as the "Top Tier," to determine where further assessment is needed. A common logic is applied to all patterns to break down the movement in a systematic way to reach a movement diagnosis of either mobility or stability/motor control dysfunction.

Most of the live portion of the SFMA seminar is spent in practical sessions. Participants are taught the assessment criteria and have ample to practice and opportunities to ask questions to ensure they are comfortable integrating the system immediately into their clinical practice.

SFMA Level 1 Online Included

SFMA Level 1 Online is now provided as a resource prior to attending the event. We strongly recommend viewing the online course prior to your event, but all information will be covered in the live event. Please note:  SFMA Level 1 Online becomes available at the time of course registration and the cost ($1,095) is nonrefundable.
