There was a time when I used to think that most humans began as ideal forms. A perfect biological creation set forth to unfold on the path of pre-programmed growth and development. That it wasn’t until some external force collided with the body in an unfortunate circumstance that this destiny toward optimal potential would be sidetracked.
Functional Manual Therapy™ is a framework for evaluating and treating Physical Therapy patients. FMT clearly identifies what aspects of the body are out of balance allowing the therapist to prioritize treatment methods that will help the patient reach their goals in the least amount of sessions.
Manual Physical Therapy can support bringing life into this world in so many ways. When you are in any stage of parenthood, be it imagining your future family, growing a human, recovering from delivery, feeding them constantly, playing sports and doing crafts, or sending them off to college, this work can remove barriers to really enjoying the whole process.
Think of the body as a skeleton whose job it is to protect your life sustaining organs. Your skeleton has muscles attached to it so that those life sustaining organs can move throughout the world. Your organs also connect to your skeleton via fascia. Think of fascia like a seatbelt for your organ. It keeps everyone in their place during the ride.
