Chiropractic Bloomington IN FAKTR therapy

Bloomington chiropractors, offer FAKTR therapy. FAKTR (pronounced “factor”) is an acronym that stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab and is a revolutionary way to treat soft tissue problems.  It involves an instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation (IASTM) with functional movement or exercise. 


  1. Neurologically: By stimulating certain pathways in the nervous system we are able to normalize the tone of overactive or underactive muscles. Through sensory, motor, and proprioceptive stimulation, we are able to bombard the central nervous system with a tremendous amount of afferent (from the periphery to the central nervous system) input. This bombardment is like hitting control alt delete on your computer effectively rebooting your nervous system and restoring proper tone to the tissue.
  2. Structurally: Through specific localized treatments, we are able to influence the healing process of injured and degenerating tissues. Through these specific types of treatment, it is possible to increase the proliferation of the cells of healing and remodel injured tissue into a healthy state. This would be similar to re-attaching fibers of a rope freighting from the inside out.
  3. Vascular/Microcirculatory: By changing the type of treatment intensity, it is possible to turn soft tissue treatments into an anti-inflammatory treatment. Through light and gentle treatments, we are able to affect superficial blood flow to a region assisting in the reduction of swelling, bruising, bursitis, post-surgical pain, and areas of heightened sensitivity.

FAKTR combines soft tissue treatments with resistance training, functional activities, and proprioceptive (balance and coordination) exercises to produce faster results than conventional treatment methods. FAKTR is designed to reduce pain and restore function. Most patients notice improvements in their pain, range of motion, or ability to perform sports after their first treatment.
