Functional Training analyzes the ways in which physical sciences impact biological sciences, in order to provide you with the best possible treatment plan. Physical sciences refer to the effects the world has on us, such as gravity, mass, and momentum. Biological sciences refer to our bodies and how they respond to the physical sciences, such as our motion, balance, stability, reaction, and proprioceptors. The goal of Functional Training is to focus and improve upon the “Success, Encouragement, Locus of Control, Empowerment, Relevance, and Significance” of the biological sciences.
Applied Functional Science (AFS) is based upon proven scientific truth, rather than theory. AFS is a term used to match the best, most effective physical therapy techniques (supported by scientific research) to an individual recovering from a certain condition. At Rebound Physical Therapy, we implement AFS in the creation of all our treatment plans. If you are looking for a Boise and Meridian physical therapy practice that used Functional Training like AFS, request an appointment today.
This all takes into account the Gray Institute’s Principle-Strategy-Technique Process. This refers to the “why” of movement (principles), the “what” of movement (techniques), and the “how” of movement (strategies). When designing a treatment plan, it is important to consider every “why,” “what,” and “how,” determining how physical sciences and biological sciences factor into each one.
