Purpose
Written and developed by Gregory S. Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT and Vicky Saliba Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT.   FM I (formerly FO I) was the first biomechanical soft tissue mobilization (STM) course offered to the PT profession. It presents an integrated approach to patient care with emphasis on soft tissue mobilization combined with PNF, joint mobilization and exercise training. This course presents techniques that are the foundation to advanced course material. 

FM I trains the participant to observe structure, posture, and movement and correlate the presenting mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control objective findings to dysfunctions in the soft tissue system. The concept of the human body as an interconnected dynamic system will be stressed, presenting evidence as to the interrelationship between the soft tissue system and the articular, neuromuscular, and motor control systems.  Emphasis is placed on the evaluation of the soft tissue structures and the application of specific treatment techniques to normalize any identified dysfunction.

Objectives
Define and identify efficient and inefficient structure and function utilizing three IPA Functional Tests.

Correlate subjective findings to dysfunctions in the soft tissues of the body.

Develop specific layer palpation skills to assist in the delineation of structures involved.

Perform seven specific Functional Soft Tissue Mobilization techniques as an integrated component of the Functional Manual Therapy® system for posterior and anterior spinal structures.

Discuss the current literature related to Soft Tissue Mobilization.
