FAKTR helps speed recovery from chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes and acute chiropractic musculoskeletal/fascial conditions.
FAKTR (actually FAKTR-PM, but referred to as FAKTR) stands for “Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion.”
Benefits of FAKTR:
- Reduces or removes pain associated with a specific movement or activity in sports or in daily life
- Treats chronic or complex conditions when other types of therapies have been unsuccessful
- Strengthens injured tissues while increasing range of motion

How does FAKTR work?
FAKTR combines several different forms of chiropractic therapy. Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is used to locate and remove myofascial adhesions or restrictions. These therapies, in combination with rehabilitation exercises, strengthen the tissues while restrictions are being removed.
Specific athletic motions, such as hitting or throwing, and daily activities, such as sitting for prolonged periods or bending over to put on socks, may cause pain and stress to the body. FAKTR treats the patient in a position of provocation, or a position that causes symptoms like pain, tightness, or stiffness. By treating patients in a position of provocation, the sports chiropractic physician is able to locate and treat the problem.
Putting the patient into the position, activity, or movement that is uncomfortable or painful and applying manual therapies combined with resisted motion often causes a stubborn condition to respond positively.
In situations where chronic conditions or injuries with complex compensation patterns exist, FAKTR initiates improvements that lead to less pain, an increased range of motion, and a return to normal activities.
