Understanding Pain. What to do about it in less than five minutes?
At Berry Chiropractic Center we first acess the cause of pain and to do so we use SFMA: Selective Functional Movement Sytems.
The SFMA is a comprehensive assessment that classifies movement patterns. This system helps the clinician recognize meaningful impairments and integrate the current best evidence (manual therapy and therapeutic exercise) for treating musculoskeletal conditions.
Dr. Berry believes that, " Pain is a symptom of a "Mechanical Break Down", and is due to not moving properly, "Mechanical Stress causes the break down of tissue. "
" Microtrauma results from small amounts of stress imposed on the body over time caused by poor biomechanics and the body compensates with suboptimal joint alignment, muscle coordination, and posture. Joints begin approximating in an effort to gain stability lost from muscular weakness and compensation. This process known as ‘Joint Centration’ is an inherent protective mechanism of the body which if left uncorrected may cause osteoarthritis, degeneration, and decreased mobility."-Stop Chasing Pain" From, Stop Chasing Pain with Perry Nickelston D.C., Ramsey N.J.
DR Berry performs a Functional Movement Screening. Known as FMS this screening system helps Dr. Berry in understanding his patients body's movement patterns. FMS uses a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.
