FAKTR and Graston Technique are both instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization techniques. FAKTR and Graston Technique effectively aid in the removal of scar tissue and muscle adhesions that contribute to both acute and chronic conditions.
FAKTR (pronounced “factor”) in an acronym that stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab and is an innovative way to improve movement dysfunction and treat soft tissue disorders. It is effective for many conditions, ranging from headaches, back pain, shoulder issues, IT band syndrome, to foot pain.
FAKTR provides an effective means of detection and treatment of soft tissue fibrosis (scar tissue), adhesions that develop as a result from an accumulation of micro-traumas and restoration of proper muscle and joint function. The breakdown of scar tissue and fascial restrictions in combination with functional ranges of motion and treatment of the entire kinetic chain is what allows these two techniques to be so effective at delivering shorter recovery times.
What our patients are saying
“I always feel so much better when I leave Finan Chiropractic!! My body feels better from being adjusted and my heart feels better from the friendly people in the office. I would recommend to everyone!”
“The whole process was super easy. Filling out the forms and scheduling the appointment was a breeze. And Dr. Nate Backer was incredible. He is a straight shooter and does not try to hide anything from you. He focuses on fixing the problem, not the symptoms. Very personable and knowledgeable. Felt so much better after leaving the office. He assigned me stretches I could do at home to help relieve some of my pain and they are working great. Overall, a fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend!”
“I have been a patient since 2014 and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Finan. She is attentive and extremely knowledgeable. I had previously quit seeing a chiropractor because my chronic pain was not being resolved – until I saw her! I recently began seeing Dr. Nate as well and have received nothing but excellent care as well. The office staff is so friendly and helpful – go, go, go! You won’t regret it.”
“Josh helped me recover from two running injuries this year. I was able to run a pain free half marathon three weeks ago, and I look forward to a healthy running year in 2017 thanks to the excellent care I received.”
“He (Dr. Backer) was very knowledgeable and helpful in asking great questions to try to figure out root causes of symptoms vs jumping straight into adjustments and such. He provided a lot of good information and took the time to discuss preventative habits with me such as stretching, sleeping positions, etc that may help prevent future symptoms. He was very skilled in adjusting and relieving tension I immediately felt an increase in mobility and decreased tension. Looking forward to my next appointment!”
“Dr. Finan is amazing. The rest of the staff is too. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. They are always on time. I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes in the year I’ve been going there. Dr. Finan has helped my back and ailments in such a short time. I feel great! Thank you!”
