New Treatment at ACR...FAKTR

We have an exciting new treatment being offered at ACR known as FAKTR, an acronym standing for Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehab.
Dr. Iodice is one of the only practitioners of any profession in the KC area who is proficient in both Active Release (ART) and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Release (commonly known as Graston).  Despite our very high success rate, we are always striving to improve our results.  Thus, the Dr is now also FAKTR certified.

The treatment involves using soft tissue release techniques, such as those mentioned above, during movements that reproduce a patient’s painful activity.  In this example, we are using a lunge on wobble boards to reproduce the forces encountered during running to treat an IT band injury. 

FAKTR treatments enable the Dr. more effectively treat complex or stubborn injuries, even those that have failed previous treatment. 

Sample conditions include: neck pain, shoulder impingement, elbow injuries, hip flexor/groin strain, hamstring pull, Achilles tendon pain.

Call our office at 913-764-2271 or email at office@advancedchiropractickc.com to experinece FAKTR for yourself!
