Functional Integrated Therapy
THE FIT CONCEPT/APPROACH
Functional Integrated Therapy™ is an innovative and highly successful approach used to assess and manage soft tissue injuries and manage athletic performance. Functional Integrated Therapy™ has been used to treat professional athletes, world and Olympic champion level athletes, active individuals and weekend warriors and is often used as part of post–surgical recovery programs.
The cornerstone of Functional Integrated Therapy™ is its multi-faceted approach which addresses soft tissue and joint biomechanics as well as the neural information system to speed up recovery from injuries, restore proper function and improve performance. Taking a holistic approach to assessment and treatment of injuries reflects how our bodies work and allows all elements (mechanics, soft tissue and nerve function) to heal and achieve optimal function.
The F.I.T. Institute is a certified educational organization offering courses that address the framework, theory and practical skills that clinicians need to be able to apply the FIT approach. Clinical courses focus on assessment, treatment approaches or both and courses are open to currently practicing clinicians (Physiotherapists, Chiropractic Doctors, Registered Massage Therapists). Courses focusing on healthy lifestyle and wellbeing are targeted to the general public.
