Applied Functional Science is a process for functional assessment, training, conditioning, rehabilitation, and injury prevention that is practical for any and all individuals regardless of age or ability. It is a unique practice that requires extensive education and training beyond the traditional education received by rehabilitation clinicians. AFS trained physical therapists find the biomechanical faults and compensations to focus on the root causes instead of merely the symptoms. We are able to treat patients as a whole through the collaboration of the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences.
Physical: Functional mechanics of the joints and muscles as they respond to everyday activities.
Biological: Functional application of neuromuscular properties in everyday activities.
Behavioral: Incorporating personal driving factors, motivations and goals for betterment in your individualized treatment plan.
What is the difference? Traditional Therapy treats the part and Function Physical Therapy treats the person.
