CERTIFICATION IN APPLIED FUNCTIONAL SCIENCE (CAFS)
WHAT IS CAFS?
Your clients are unique. Why settle for a treatment program that approaches every case the same? Arm yourself with the premier certification that gives movement professionals the tools to develop custom assessment, treatment, and training programs tailor made for each individual. CAFS® is the first certification of its kind that will empower the movement professional to create treatments and programs for the client’s specific needs based on their individual abilities and goals.
CAFS gives movement professionals the tools to develop customized prevention, training, and treatment programs tailor-made for each individual. This certification focuses on ten (10) principal body parts – Foot / Ankle, Knee, Anterior Hip, Posterior Hip, Medial Hip, Lateral Hip, Lumbar Spine, Thoracic Spine, Cervical Spine, and Shoulder-Elbow-Hand Complex. Furthermore, this certification empowers you with “Local to Global Spectrum,” which allows one to tweak functional movements in a manner that integrates tri-plane motion at a body part and integrates with the rest of the body.
When it comes to movement and Program Design, there are many variables in which to consider and leverage in creating the best movement and program for the individual. CAFS teaches the ten (10) Observational Essentials, as well as provides numerous real-life examples in how to best incorporate these variables, which are Action, Environment, Position, Driver, Direction, Height, Distance, Load, Rate, and Duration. When it comes to fundamental movement patterns (Lunging, Squatting, Jumping, Reaching, Lifting, Pushing, Pulling, and Walking), it is no wonder how and why this certification changes the way one practices, treats, and trains … for the better!
