FAKTR (pronounced FACTOR) is a concept, not a technique, to evaluate and treat soft tissue/fascial conditions. The acronym stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab.
The concept combines function and treatment of the kinetic chain while utilizing various forms of rehabilitation at the same time. Treatment is also in the position of provocation (pain, loss of range of motion, feeling of tightness within the soft tissue) and during motion.
FAKTR can treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Some of the most common conditions treated with FAKTR include tendinosis (tendinopathy), sprains, strains, entrapment syndromes, fascial restrictions such as plantar fasciosis and ITB syndrome, myofascial pain syndromes, adhesive capsulitis, shin splints,and post surgical recovery.
