Functional Manual Therapy

Functional Manual Therapy is an integrated evaluation and treatment approach that focuses on promoting optimal human performance.This approach is based on three pillars: Mechanical, Neuromuscular, and Motor Control. It involves a detailed assessment of movement and function as well as an evaluation of the soft tissue, joint, neurovascular, and visceral components which limit motion and function.

In order to maximize patient function and outcomes, you need to address not one but all of these components, each of which is integrated during evaluation and treatment. Overall, FMT® is a whole body treatment approach which looks at the body as a kinetic chain.
