Mark Carangelo


FIT is a one-of-a-kind multidisciplinary approach developed by Mark Carangelo. FIT integrates pain science, development neuromuscular sequencing, movement screenings, rolling patterns and crawling, vestibular reading balance, manual muscle testing, parasympathetic ns activation, osteopathic alignments, orthopedic assessments, (passive, active, resistive and special tests) along with myofascial release, trigger point therapy, stretching, corrective exercise (client home care) and joint mobilizations to facilitate an overall balance of the body resulting in structural integration, pain free movement and enhanced overall performance. As therapists, we need to assess movement patterns and make corrective methods for the client’s long-term health. People compensate for faulty movement patterns and the proper assessment is key to correction of these compensation patterns. Reprogramming the CNS will allow for the client to regain the proper motor control sequencing. We should be looking at the body from the inside out not the other way around…

It is paramount to make an accurate assessment of the condition in which your client presents. If the therapist assesses the patient has a stability issue over a mobility issue the correction can be quite different. Stability calls for developmental sequencing via rolling. These specific evaluations need to be correctly assessed to assure the proper treatment is conducted. Understanding how we function as humans is a major part of FIT.
