07 Jun KFMT crew expands!
Welcome our newest KFMT member, Travis Gerrald, DPT! Travis is excited to join the team at KFMT as he works towards becoming a Certified Functional Manual Therapist (CFMT). He was first introduced to the Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) approach while in Physical Therapy school and witnessed the power of FMT and the importance of enhancing function, not simply treating symptoms. Having completed all the course work, he plans to sit for certification in August of 2019.
Travis completed his undergraduate work at Clemson University and received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Elon University in 2014. In addition to his FMT training, he has studied and taken courses from the work of Bob Elvey, Geoffrey Maitland, and The Gray Institute.
He maintains professional interest in studying nutrition and its role in development of pain, inflammation, and chronic diseases. His experience also includes cervicogenic headaches, spine pathologies, and enhancing the ability to connect the human body as one efficient unit to allow for decreased pain, improved function and physical performance.
Outside of work, Travis looks forward to exploring the parks of NYC with his wife and their dog. He loves to eat good food, exercise, watch college football, and read books on personal growth/professional development.
You’ll find him on the schedule fully starting 7/16:
Tuesday: 12 – 9
Until then, look out for a Q&A with him to learn more!
