Functional Manual Therapy

 "[FMT] is like working with a chiropractor, massage
therapist, and personal trainer all in one!"

 Revolutions In Fitness believes in empowering human potential! Whether you are an Olympian or a new grandparent who wants to get back to picking up your grandkids, we know you can accomplish your health and performance goals! 

Here at Revolutions in Fitness we have found that the Functional Manual Therapy™ (FMT) approach to physical therapy provides our therapists with the expertise necessary to help clients overcome a variety of complex musculoskeletal diagnoses. 

Functional Manual Therapy™ (FMT) is an integrated evaluation and treatment system that promotes optimum human performance by enhancing total body mobility and CoreFirst postural and movement strategies.  FMT was developed by Gregory S. Johnson, PT, and Vicky Saliba Johnson, PT of the Institute of Physical Art. 

The Functional Manual Therapist is trained to identify and treat specific mobility limitations within the joints, soft tissues, viscera and neurovascular tissues.  These limitations may be in the area of a client’s symptoms, but are often remote, clinically silent regions causing undue stress in the symptomatic area.  The ultimate goal of Functional Manual Therapy™ is to provide the patient with the mechanical ability and the neuromuscular tools of strength, endurance and proprioceptive awareness to become self sufficient and more proficient in all areas of human performance. This means we find what is tight, loosen it up then retrain your body how to use long forgotten muscles and optimal movement strategies.  

Revolutions In Fitness is proud to note that four of our physiotherapists are certified specialists in Functional Manual Therapy™, allowing us to provide exceptional physical therapy to clients in our Palo Alto and San Jose offices. 

At Revolutions in Fitness, all visits are scheduled for 1 hour with your physiotherapist, no aids, no assistants!
