You may be asking, “What is a Functional Manual Therapy Screen?”

That’s a great question!  A Functional Manual Therapy is a type of physical therapy screen that involves a Body Gears Physical Therapist assessing a specific area or region of your body that has been in a state of discomfort or pain. We’re experts at finding the root cause of your symptoms. We like to say that we “connect the dots” of your physical blueprint, taking into account all of your previous injuries, illnesses, and movement issues. In plain English, we watch exactly how you move and determine what’s off about it. Then we put you on the treatment table and our highly trained therapists make adjustments (like releasing a joint that’s too tight, a nerve that doesn’t glide properly, or a superficial fascia on the back that’s not allowing movement). Once we can move the area passively for you, we then teach you how to “drive your machine” (turn on the right muscles) in a new and correct way so that you can move with freedom and ease…and you don’t reinjure yourself.

What does that mean?

Our treatment philosophy is rooted in the breakthrough practice of Functional Manual Therapy™ taught at the Institute of Physical Art (IPA). Of the more than 300,000 licensed physical therapists in the U.S., less than 300 have a Certification in Functional Manual Therapy™ and fewer than 30 have successfully completed their Fellowship in this modality. To put all of this in perspective, at our treatment center you’ll have the benefit of working with therapists that have risen to the top 1% of their field. Body Gears is the leading provider of FMT in the Midwest.
Don’t miss out on any of these amazing events! Grab a friend, come hungry (and thirsty), meet our talented team and let us help you get better!
