FMLQ course

CBI: Complete Body Integration
2.5 days 20 contact hours
Prerequisites: FM I 

Course Overview
This course will train the participant to evaluate and treat mechanical, neuromuscular and motor control dysfunctions of the complete body through the use of Functional Movement Patterns (FMPs). 

Required Pre-Course Preparation Work:  None

Required Equipment: All participants should bring:

Half Foam Roll (12" x 6" which measures 3" tall at the apex since the 6" round is cut in half) to use during the course.  You may order one from IPA or from a number of other providers.  Orders that are received three weeks prior to a course, and clearly request shipment to a course, may be shipped directly to the course.  All other orders will be shipped to the address given on the order.  Order Half Foam Roll

8 ft Mobilization Belt.  1.5" x 8' mobilization belt.  You may order one from IPA or from a number of other providers.  Orders that are received three weeks prior to a course, and clearly request shipment to a course, may be shipped directly to the course.  All other orders will be shipped to the address given on the order.  Order Mobilization Belt

Supplies are shipped 2-3 weeks prior to the course.  Orders placed after the supplies have shipped will incur a fee to expedite your order, and may include charges for faster shipping.  

Recommended Reading

Illustrated Anatomy Book.  It is recommended that each participant bring an illustrated anatomy book, or an electronic anatomy book app, to the course.  We recommend Netter FH. Atlas of Human Anatomy.  East Hanover, MNJ.  Novartis 1977.  Online anatomy applications work well if you have a way to access them during the course.  Other illustrated anatomy books are acceptable.  Atlas of Human Anatomy books may be ordered on Amazon.com or www.us.elsevierhealth.com/netter/

It is required that each participant reviews the Bibliography and read any article they are unfamiliar with prior to the course.

Approach Description

Under the direction of Gregory S. Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT and CBI faculty, the participant utilizes dynamic treatment strategies and Functional Movement Patterns (adapted from FeldenkraisTM ATM lessons) to evaluate and treat each region of the body, including viscera. Emphasis is on passive and active associated movements while performing soft & tissue and joint mobilization (Functional MobilizationTM) in non-weight bearing and weight bearing positions. These strategies provide avenues to study and comprehend the interrelationships of the kinetic chain and the effectiveness of enhancing function as a foundation for treating complex orthopedic problems.  Cost of the course includes an extensive manual with over 250 pictures of techniques and an IPA plunger. This course presents dynamic Functional MobilizationTM treatment strategies for each region of the body to assist in the management of complex orthopedic dysfunctions.  Building on the skills of FM I, these strategies develop from an understanding of the efficient and inefficient interrelationships of the kinetic chain. 


~ Develop skills of full body evaluation and treatment

~ Develop specific FM progression strategies to enhance functional capacity of the complete body

~  Dynamically incorporate passive, active, and resisted associated movements with joint and soft tissue mobilization integrated with functional neuromuscular training.

~  Integrate FMP’s into your treatment program

~ Develop strategic evaluation and treatment skills to enhance regional interdependence of the complete body

~ Discuss the evidence for the FMP material. 

Instructor Note
The instructors advertised for the course are the intended instructors.  The final number of instructors will be determined by course enrollment.  Every effort is made to hold the course with the scheduled instructors.  Course refunds or transfers will not be granted based on a change of instructors.  Please note there may be instructor changes without prior notice.  Multiple instructors are scheduled for each course.  However, the actual number of instructors at a course will be determined by final enrollment.

2.5 Days, 20 Contact Hours

CBI requires attendees to complete online pre-course preparation work before attending the classroom instruction. Approved CEUs for this course may vary depending on individual states' treatment of Online vs. Classroom Instruction. Before registering for a course you should verify approved CEUs with your state licensing board or association. State rules are subject to change. IPA courses are approved for PTs for the state in which the course is held.  OTs and PTAs should check with their approving body to determine if the PT approval will be accepted.

Break food will be provided during the first break on Friday evening.  The break food is intended to be a snack, not dinner.  No other food will be provided. We suggest you bring a water bottle and your own snacks if desired.

Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act.

Each attendee is expected to complete the required pre-course preparation work and attend all hours of instruction to receive a Certificate of Completion.  Any exceptions to this policy must be pre-approved in writing by the IPA Directors.

Lab Clothing
Each participant's body must be accessible for observation and treatment.  Sports bra or halter top and shorts are appropriate for women. Shorts or swim trunks for men.  Please refrain from wearing large or sharp jewelry.  A sweat suit is advisable between demonstrations, as temperatures may vary in the room.

Course Preparation
This 2.5-day workshop is quite demanding and intense.  Please come prepared and rested.  Have your fingernails clipped back and filed as some techniques require fingertip pressure.  Review your FM I course manual. There will not be a review of FM I at the course.  Bring the required equipment.
