Certification in Applied Functional Science® (CAFS) gives movement professionals the skills and knowledge to approach each individual according to their unique goals and daily function. With CAFS  we look to treat the whole individual instead of just the body part experiencing an injury.

Through a series of 8 fundamental movement pattern tests our trained CAFS therapists will assess each individuals’ biomechanical limitations and compensations to discover the root causes instead of focusing on the symptoms:

  • Lunging
  • Squatting
  • Jumping
  • Reaching
  • Lifting
  • Pushing
  • Pulling
  • Walking

Our physical therapists will oversee the implementation of the workout program and reassess the needs and goals as the program progresses. With combining the principles of Applied Functional Science® and our therapists experience and skill set, we take an individualized approach to identifying and treating common dysfunction, creating mobility and progressing to stability and strength for any range of functional needs and for any population.

At IMPACT Physical Therapy, we want the best for all of our patients. Our team is fully trained in Applied Functional Science and is here to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving your overall quality of life.
