< What is The SFMA >

The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is a movement based diagnostic system designed to enhance the practitioner's current evaluation skills. By using a standardized, algorithmic, approach to evaluate movement, the assessment will guide you to the root impairments that are contributing to pain and dysfunction in the human movement system. Your evaluation will become more efficient and effective, allowing you more time with your patients and resulting in better patient outcomes.

Take a leap. Join us for an SFMA Certification Course and challenge yourself to be a better, more effective clinician.

< Frequently Asked Questions >

Questions always come up about events like these, and we want to save you some time by providing you with answers to some of the questions that we see a lot. Don’t hestitate to reach out with further questions.

  • Are there any pre-requisites?
    Your registration for the SFMA course includes an online pre-course component that will cover an overview of the SFMA as well as the top tier assessment and subsequent breakouts for each movement. This addition to the course makes the material much easier to comprehend during the live course and is also available for you to review after the course as you incorporate the SFMA into your practice.
  • How do I get certified?
    Upon completion of the course you will be eligible for certification. Functional Movement Systems is the certifying body for the SFMA and therefore your online test will be administered through their site. Once you pass with an 80% or greater score, you will be a certified SFMA provider and will be listed as such in the main database. This is a searchable database for both clinicians and patients and a great marketing tool.
  • How do I sign up for a course?
    Just simply click any of the links above or CLICK HERE to view the full course schedule and register online. We also accept payment by mail if that is perfered. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our office.
  • Do I get continuing education credit?
    Advances in Clinical Education will provide each participant with a certificate of completion at the end of each course. Courses are pre-approved (when required) for PT continuing education credit in the state that the course is held. Advances in Clinical Education is also an NATA-BOC provider and is approved for 16 EBP credits.
  • Are courses only for PTs?
    Absolutely not. We welcome and encourage all PTs, OTs, ATCs, DCs, MDs, and DOs or anyone who may be interacting with or part of a team that looks at human movement and restoring pain free function. In addition, we encourage PTAs and COTAs to attend the course as they are an integral part of the rehab team and the ability to all use the same systematic approach is a game changer.
