Prana Functional Manual Therapy
A holistic physical therapy center
Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) is OUR WAY of doing Physical Therapy
AT PRANA, our physical therapy (PT) is holistic with respect to the ENTIRE BODY no matter where the symptoms show up. We treat the “why”, not just the “what” in YOUR movement system.
Explore. Identify. Treat.
We offer one-on-one Physical Therapy sessions to explore, identify, and treat the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction, rather than simply alleviating your symptoms. We take our patients through a detailed and systematic process of identifying:
Mechanical – Neuromuscular – Motor Control Dysfunctions
As Prana physical therapists we apply functional manual therapy to find what is stuck, tight and stiff (“mechanical” muscles, joints, fascia, nerves, etc); we re-train the muscles and your nervous system on how to react and function in the new range gained (“neuro-muscular”); then we educate and train you to maximize your daily activity, passion or sport (“motor control”) with a “machine” that works properly and can be pushed to perform at its best with no limitations!
Why it makes sense.
Whether you are trying to pick up your grandchildren without pain, going after your PR in a race, trying to walk with good balance or trying to dance eight shows a week, etc.
As your highly trained and certified specialists our job to have the skill, knowledge and techniques to find the source of your symptoms or movement problems and treat them effectively in order to promote efficiency in daily life, enhance high-level performance and prevent injuries.
–without stress and strain to your body
As our focus is on the physical, we are dedicated to acknowledging the effects of mental, emotional and spiritual stresses to the body.
Your goals are our goals. This requires a team approach between therapist and patient…and a little bit of fun!
