This course introduces the Functional Manual Therapy(R) (FMT) paradigm for the management of knee pain and dysfunction. The knee is an important link in the kinetic chain and is the interconnecting segment between the foot and the hip. The management strategy for addressing knee problems is demonstrated through treatment of three patients presenting with knee pain. Gregory S. Johnson progresses the viewer through the subjective and objective evaluations of each patient and then presents a systematic FMT treatment plan and progression for their care.

This course is part of a six-part series with Gregg and Vicky Johnson, which is designed to provide the participant with a working understanding of the FMT system of patient care through live patient demonstrations and lectures to support the clinical reasoning behind the progression of treatment and skills used:

  • Functional Manual Therapy(R): A Comprehensive Patient Management System.
  • Understanding the Interconnectivity of the Body's Connective Tissues and Articulations and Their Interdependency for Efficient Function - Live patient assessment and treatment and mechanical components of neck and low back pain by Gregory S. Johnson.
  • Neuromuscular Function: Mastering the Specificity of Manual Neuromuscular Facilitation - Live patient demonstrations for the assessment and facilitation of CoreFirst(R) postural and movement strategies and the integrated use of specific manual neuromuscular facilitation to address ROM, Initiation, and strength by Vicky Saliba Johnson and Gregory Johnson.
  • Motor Control: Principles of CoreFirst(R) Strategies for Posture and Movement - Live patient demonstration utilizing CoreFirst(R) strategies for posture and movement to promote an Automatic Core Engagement (ACE) by Vicky Saliba Johnson.
  • The Functional Manual Therapy(R) Approach to the Knee - Live patient assessment and treatment of a knee patient by Gregory S. Johnson.
  • The Functional Manual Therapy(R) Approach to the Pelvic Girdle - Live patient assessment and treatment of a low back patient by Gregory S. Johnson.

1. Case Study One

This chapter presents a patient with complex knee pain and dysfunction. He has a 6 years history of knee pain and has undergone 4 surgeries. Treatment includes the management of his mechanical soft tissue and articular dysfunctions and addresses the underlying neuromuscular and motor control impairments.

2. Case Study Two

This patient presents with the diagnosis of a complete tear of his left PCL. The video presents a treatment strategy for management of his pain and impairments through addressing his mechanical and neuromuscular dysfunctions.

3. Case Study Three

The purpose of this patient demonstration was to demonstrate the FMT management of meniscoid pain and dysfunctions.
