Ryan Strasser, DPT utilizes the principles of Applied Functional Science (AFS). AFS is more effective than standard physical therapy because it is an integrative, holistic approach to evaluation and rehabilitation. The whole body and how its movements are correlated are considered in order to focus on the root causes of any pain or injury instead of merely the symptoms. By applying these principles, patients have experienced accelerated results that are measurable and sustainable.
What is Applied Functional Science?
AFS is the combination of sciences that allows for purposeful movement. It is the convergence of Physical Sciences (the world we live in), Biological Sciences (the miracle of the human body), and Behavioral Sciences (the power of the mind and spirit). These sciences are the foundation to AFS’s Principle-Strategy-Technique Process, and allow for the best, most effective and efficient movements to be applied to any and all individuals based on specific needs, wants, and goals.
