Physical Therapy

Physical therapists are health care professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the most seasoned citizens, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities during daily life. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan using various holistic treatment techniques to improved the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. The following are examples of the conditions we commonly treat.

Functional Manual Therapy (FMT)

Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) is a revolutionary concept in physical therapy. It was developed by Gregg and Vick Johnson, founders of the Institute of Physical Art (IPA). FMT uses specific evaluation techniques to identify movement dysfunction that may contribute to pain, decreased mobility and degenerative changes.  Based on the evaluative findings, specific hands on therapy techniques and movement patterns are used to restore efficient mobility of the joints and soft tissues including muscle, nerves, organs, fascia, skin, tendons and ligaments. Once efficient mobility of the system has been restored, neuromuscular re-education is utilized to improve specific muscle initiation, strength and endurance.  The final component is to improve motor control, which focuses on proper movement patterns that allow for the most efficient use of the body.  This includes integration of the new movement patterns into sports-specific movements or everyday activities such as walking, lifting, or active sitting.

With more than 200,000 licensed Physical Therapists in the United States, less than 300 have received the distinction of being a Certified Functional Manual Therapist (CFMT). (cited from IPA Manhattan)
