About these Clinics/Practices
When a patient first comes to Elite our Certified FMT therapists carefully observe, assess and skillfully use their hands to identify inflammation, scar tissue and gauge strength and mobility.
Treatment is uniquely designed for each patient and involves manually treating soft tissues, muscles and joints, continually assessing progress and adapting treatment strategies to facilitate strength and healing.
Patients also learn how to prevent issues from recurring by showing them the right ways to move (and how to avoid stressors that may have caused the problem).
Based on specific patient needs, FMT also incorporates behavioral, nutrition and stress management components for maximal healing.
Functional Manual Therapy is a multi-dimensional approach to the body that evaluates mobility, motor control and how the brain affects our movements. We don’t practice traditional physical therapy because FMT gives a better outcome for most patients. Instead of isolating the injured or impaired area, FMT therapists focus on how it aligns with the rest of the body, which often reveals a different root cause than originally assumed.
All treatments are one-on-one for sixty minutes.
