This approach developed and taught by Gregory S. Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, presents the dynamic principles and procedures of Functional MobilizationTM as an evaluation and treatment component of the Functional Manual Therapy® treatment model. Functional MobilizationTM couples active and resisted movement (PNF) with soft tissue and joint mobilization to facilitate normalization of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control dysfunctions. The participant is trained to evaluate each movement segment through the use of PNF patterns and to combine the selective pattern into the full trunk and extremity patterns. Instruction will emphasize the treatment of both hypomobile structures and the stabilization of hypermobile segments with prolonged holds to promote activation of the core muscle’s contraction. Functional MobilizationTM dynamically integrates the principles and procedures of PNF with soft tissue and joint mobilization for each technique. Instruction will emphasize mobile and hypermobile structures, stabilize hypermobile articulations and reeducation of the motor system.
• Develop specific Functional Mobilization™ progression strategies to enhance functional capacity of the lower quadrant.
• Develop competence in the assessment and treatment of focus areas: lumbar spine, sacrum, innominate, coccyx, hip, knee and lower limb neurovascular treatment.
• Develop home exercises to augment the treatment program.
• Discuss the evidence for the FMLQ material.
